The Active Gourmet Travel


Travel should never be a rush from one place to another. It’s such a pleasure to take time and savour the sights, sounds, traditions and tastes of a region.

The active gourmet travel traces its beginnings to 1992, when a group of friends – calling themselves the Cycling Sybarites - began biking to wineries, playing petanque and having sensational picnics in the wine districts of New Zealand. 

Two years later, inspired by the success and enjoyment of these excursions, Sybarite Gail Trapp established her business, and the first tour group headed to France. 

Over the next 17 years, hundreds of happy clients have followed in their tracks enjoying the unique blend of holiday activity and gourmet adventure. 

Gail continues to design and coordinate tour groups, experiential travel and self-led holidays, and is assisted by many travel and food and wine specialists around the world. Her 'team' is by now a well-oiled machine allowing the active gourmet travel to give great value for money and an experience second to none. 

Gail is a self-confessed bonne vivante with a well-developed sense of adventure, a deep knowledge of, and love for, food and wine, and a passion for the diverse regions that are featured in the active gourmet travel portfolio.
