Kinfolk Travel


Do less—see more. This is the promise of slow travel: an invitation to explore the world at your own pace and on your own terms that work for both you and the people and places you encounter. It’s about enjoying the journey, getting off the grid and consciously connecting with communities old and new.

A farm-to-table meal in the Albanian capital. A dip in the natural hot springs of New Zealand. A running route that takes you through the heart of Seoul.

In Kinfolk Travel, John Burns and the Kinfolk team reconsider the art of travel and how slowing down fosters thoughtful perspectives on the places we visit, and a more meaningful relationship with the ones we return to once the journey is over.

From Senegal to Scotland, and from bird-watching to boating, Kinfolk Travel embarks on ventures across six continents, offering inspiration and ideas for thoughtful new ways to engage with culture, nature and communities, whether on the other side of the world or the other side of town.

Through trips to over twenty-five destinations, the Kinfolk team shows readers how to reimagine a weekend trip in a new city by diving deeper into its details; how to experience the full majesty of stunning landscapes through a simple outdoor pursuit; and how to choose adventure by adopting less convenient, but more memorable, ways of getting from A to B.

Celebrating the idea that travel is as much a state of mind as an action or itinerary, Kinfolk Travel is an invitation to see more of the world by doing less.
