Soul Travelling started in November 2017. The whole Tourism scene in Goa was then undergoing a change in the way it was projected. People were starting to get fed up with the same old Baga- Calangute model and were longing for something more, something different. A more Soulful experience was something we planned to offer – and thus was born Soul Travelling. We had our first walking trail in October 2017, and have since worked and developed 18 other walks as well as other experiences.
We plan to change the way people perceive travel and while doing so, break the myth of the notoriously popular concept of what Goa is, and give them instead some of the most local experiences steeped in history and full of the true Goan flavor. In that way we aim to change the stereotypes associated with Goa and how Goans look at their cities/villages/towns.
Soul Travelling Walks are conducted by local ambassadors from the locations, who are experts in their own field. We have archaeologists, content writers, curators and bloggers who show you around their backyards. The focus , apart from history , is on experiences like visiting bakery, traditional Goan and community based experiences.
Apart from these, every month, we conduct walk with legend series where someone prominent curate the walking trail. We also cover traditional festivals of Goa – For Eg Three Kings Feast in Cansaulim, Mussol Khel in CHandor and Shisharanni in Cancona.
