We lead cultural & educational expeditions around the globe, inspiring people to explore the world while supporting local artisans in developing nations. Acanela curates private and small group expeditions to 80+ countries, incorporating elements of the local culture, cuisine, and history in each trip. Each Acanela Expedition is designed around an artisan. These artisans have incredible talent and abilities, but often lack the resources to monetize their skills. Acanela’s mission is to discover these men and women, help them develop as individuals, and empower them to build their own sustainable business enterprises. Acanela travelers are giving back in a sustainable way to those who need it most.
