Our specialists have created the definitive go to list of global festivals, ranging from the cultural and religious, to gourmet extravaganzas to the weird and wonderful.

We’ve sent clients to luxurious wine tasting events in Australia and New Zealand, literary festivals in Sri Lanka, and colourful Buddhist festivals in Bhutan.

Our team also has a passion for the more unusual festivals. We’ve designed luxury itineraries that include camel festivals in romantic Rajasthan, China’s International Snow and Ice festival (popular with expats who miss the cold!) and even an elephant polo tournament in Thailand.

Contact your Lightfoot Travel Designer to find out more. We arrange all flights, transfers and luxury accommodation, and you also get a tailor-made itinerary, insider access and expert guides.
