Why Travel With

Salt & Wind?

 

Inspiring…relaxing...unique…seamless…memorable. These are just a few ways our guests describe Salt & Wind food travels.

At Salt & Wind Travel we’re committed to boutique travel because small groups allows us to show our guests the best of a destination’s local treasures. Being a boutique travel company means we’re the small guys and we take all our pride in that! We’re small enough to keep the travel experience intimate and the small group size mean we can be flexible with our itineraries based on the group’s desires. 

To us, boutique travel means quality on an intimate scale. Traveling boutique allows our guests a more intimate, local look into destinations. Be it small artisanal producers, family-owned restaurants, boutique hotels, or locally-owned businesses, we’re always looking for ways to make our trips be a reflection of a region’s terroir or sense of place.

And the fact we concentrate on specific regions? Well that means we know our partners and the areas really well so we can negotiate great rates and we can show you the local’s look into it all. Here’s more about our travel philosophy!


A DIFFERENT KIND OF BOUTIQUE GROUP TRAVEL 

The Salt & Wind Philosophy


FOOD TRAVEL FIRST

Our first love is food so that is the focus of our trips. But you can’t get to know a destination on food alone so each trip mixes in some culture, tours, shopping, and fun so you see all the things that make a destination unique.


SMALL GROUP SIZES

Our group trips have a minimum of 6 and maximum of 12 guests so you won’t be alone yet you won’t feel like you're actually on a group trip!


LIKE-MINDED TRAVELERS

Salt & Wind travelers have the common bond of a love for food and culture and they want to dig deeper to discover all that makes a destination delicious.


TURNKEY TRAVEL

Skip all the hassle (and risk!) of planning a trip on your own. We do all the research, vetting, scheduling, and planning so all you have to do is pack your bags and show up ready to explore!


FOOD & TRAVEL PROS

The Salt & Wind Team is a mix of food and travel professionals and we take hospitality seriously! We lead group travel experiences to cities and countries we know inside and out, having lived or worked in each and every place.


UNPARALLELED VALUE

Our networks of relationships and experience working in these areas means we can get discounts and pass those on to you. That's to say that every trip we run would cost you a multiple of what we sell it for if you were to plan it a la carte. 


LOCAL EXPERTS

Our trips are like a well-planned party with quality quests and food. We invite to that mix our favorite locals, be they tour guides, food experts, and travel professionals so you get an authentic look into a destination.


HOSPITALITY ALWAYS

First and foremost, we aim to provide unparalleled but very much unfussy service. From our concierge to our host, our team is here to make your travel experience a total joy. 


CURATED EXPERIENCES

Our team personally vets every experience so you know they’ll be quality, yet we also vary our itineraries from trip-to-trip so each trip experience is unique.


WE SPEAK THE LANGUAGE

Truth is many travel companies' leaders can't speak the language where they lead trips! At Salt & Wind Travel, fluency is a given as it’s the only way to really connect with locals in some of the places we travel!


INSIDER ACCESS

Exclusive reservations, private driver, curated events, boutique accommodations, a photographer, and a concierge? You'll be rolling in style.


ONLY THE BEST

From premium private car service to luxury boutique hotels and even down to the tour guides, we work with partners who have exacting standards so you get the most for your money.
