Culture & Festivals

Imaginative Traveller has an incredible knowledge and understanding of the geography and culture of a destination. Tours of the music, festivals, history and culture of a country can be particularly fascinating and really brought to life when guided by a specialist.

 Fascinating festivals

Experience Paro Festival, a colourful celebration of Bhutanese culture and faith through music and dance; the Harbin Ice Festival in China, one of the world’s largest ice festivals featuring huge, beautifully-lit ice sculptures; and Mongolia's Naadam Festival, a circus-like event dating back centuries and featuring wrestling, archery and horse-racing.

The complete Rio Carnival experience

The annual Carnival in Rio de Janeiro is the greatest party on Earth, with six days’ worth of street festivals and the incredible Sambadrome parade attracting more than a million visitors each year. When you’re not partying, take some time to explore the fascinating city and its gorgeous beaches.
