As many travellers want to maintain healthy eating habits while exploring new countries, FlightHub says food has become an important part of a complete travel experience, and as more people follow a vegan diet, travel companies are answering the call for more varied culinary options.
FlightHub and JustFly take a closer look at some vegan-friendly properties, destinations and travel companies.
Properties Catering To Vegans
In the Scottish Highlands, travellers can visit the UK's first ever vegan hotel, Saorsa 1875. It features 11 bedrooms with vegan linen, and boasts an entirely plant-based restaurant menu.
According to their website, "Saorsa 1875 is designed for vegans, vegetarians and the plant-curious—a unique hotel dedicated to showcasing ethical luxury."
In Bel Air, California, The Treehouse boutique hotel also offers a curated vegan experience. The Treehouse provides vegan cooking classes, products and more. Its current homepage describes the property as "Boho-chic, plant-based, biodynamic. A hideaway in the City of Angels. Redefining luxury as wellbeing."
Airlines, hotels, tour operators, cruises and other travel businesses are adding new products and services to better accommodate a growing global appetite for veganism.
Many budget-conscious travellers choose to prepare vegan meals instead of purchasing them. Tourists can visit organic markets, take vegan cooking lessons with professional help, participate in several food tours and experiment with local vegan cuisine.
