Big Fat World Tours is for avid wanderers who don’t have time to plan their next adventure or want an out of the box experience or those who love traveling with their friends but do not want to plan anything themselves. We create fully loaded adventures to unexpected countries such as Iceland, Nepal and Croatia. Our trips are small because we value who we take just as much as where we go so each wanderer has a built-in community of friends when they arrive. We believe that great people + cool places = awesome trips.
5% of each of our scheduled trips goes to local Charlotte, NC non-profits. The Nepal Project, Girls On The Run, & Classroom Central are just a few we work with. In 2017, we donated $1250 to help build schools in Western Nepal and we expect to double that in 2018.
We craft unique experiences not currently out in the marketplace like wine trips to Croatia to meet the small winemakers rocking the Croatian wine world or catered run trips complete with a massage therapist. Even if you are not a runner, these trips are still perfect for anyone seeking a new adventure. Plus, our trips are fun, a lot of fun. By valuing who we bring on each trip, we guarantee a unique mix of people that bring out the best in one other. It’s impossible to come on Big Fat World trip and not laugh.
A good fit is a adventurous wanderer looking for an out of the box experience and would love to run a 10k or ½ marathon in Iceland or meet local winemakers in Croatia. Our trips are all about the culture of each place and unique experiences.
Our trips are not ideal for wanderers who prefer the safety of all-inclusive Caribbean resorts or cruise vacationers.
We focus on groups of 8 or less. Each trip has an American guide who has been to that country numerous times. Culture is an extremely important aspect of each trip and we look for easy going, adventurous & open minded wanderers.
Our trips are 8 -10 days and involve local sights, several excursions specific to that country and off the beaten path experiences. All of our run trips feature a massage therapist for trip massages (even if you don’t run you still get a massage).
All trips are fully loaded with hotels, meals, in-country transportation, food & wine (Croatia only), excursions, snacks, coffee breaks, etc. Currently airfare, run entry fees and alcohol in Iceland are not included. Wanderers do not go out of pocket for anything except souvenirs.
