About Samsara Vegan Travels
Samsara Vegan Travels is the first and only Dutch travel organization specializing in tours for vegans.
We offer package tours with plenty of freedom, to various interesting destinations. We have already found places with delicious vegan food, so that travelers can really enjoy and relax.
We travel in small groups with vegan companions, led by an enthusiastic vegan tour leader. Accommodation, transportation, breakfast and some excursions are included and where possible, we will visit an animal rescue center.
As a Vegan tour operator we realize that all traveling has an impact on our surroundings. We are dedicated to be the best supporters of sustainable tourism, wherever we go. This is why all our tour leaders have successfully completed the “Leading the way” training, offered by the Travel Foundation. This training teaches how to incorporate good sustainability practices, the principles of responsible guiding and communication with clients and locals.
At Samsara Vegan Travels, you can book relaxing, exciting and meaningful vacations and enjoy delicious local vegan-friendly delicacies.
Stefan van de Wetering is an enthusiastic and knowledgeable tour leader who turned his passion for discovering the world into work.
Born in the small country of the Netherlands, Stefan developed a taste for travel from a young age. Soon after graduating University his trips outside of the Netherlands expanded rapidly. Throughout the years, Stefan has quit several jobs to venture out into the unknown and to experience the ultimate freedom. So far, he has been able to visit 57 countries. While he has been around the globe, he has a strong love and preference for South-East Asia, Japan and New Zealand.
In 2018, he turned his love for traveling and a growing demand for Vegan oriented travel opportunities, into the birth of his own travel business.
Stefan has been vegan since 2017. During his travels he has explored and will continue to explore many nice places to eat Vegan food. His aim is to take all of his travelers to these restaurants so they don't have to do the searching. From experience, he knows how much time that can take, and how stressful that can be.
Together with his wife and business partner Brenda, the aim of Samsara Vegan Travel is to give travelers the experience of a relaxing, exciting and meaningful holiday, to enjoy the culture & people, the animals, nature and, last but not least, the many vegan delicacies.
