Vegan Travel Guide

Vegan and Vegetarian Travel

Sure it takes a little extra effort – but traveling as a vegetarian or vegan is not as tough as many people think. I’ve traveled quite a bit as a vegan and have never felt like I was malnourished or missing out on a key cultural experience. In fact I’ve felt quite the opposite. If you’re open to tasting new and interesting foods like I am, you’ll be amazed at the variety of exciting things you’ll get to try when traveling. This vegetarian travel guide (along with the country specific travel links at the bottom) are meant to show that it is completely possible to stick to your vegetarian belief system and enjoy the local cuisine anywhere you go.

I have created specific pages for vegan and vegetarian travel topics.

Here they are:

Country-Specific Vegan Travel Guides

  • This is list of country-specific vegan travel guides. It is basically a summation of my travel experiences, so I only built pages for places I have visited or plan to visit in the near future. I aim to eventually cover every country so that this becomes a more comprehensive vegan travel resource, but for now I’ll focus on developing content for the places I’m most familiar with. Stay tuned for more info.

Vegan and Vegetarian Travel Resources

  • This is a list of general travel resources for vegans and vegetarians travelling around the world. Includes links to restaurant guides, language guides, blogs, meetup groups, international travel sites, and articles about vegan/vegetarian travel.

Vegan Travel Products

  • This is a list of vegetarian food products and other veg-friendly items that are geared towards travel. Each review is listed by brand and I will be writing my honest opinion about them (regardless of whether or not the food was sent to me for free). This page is a work in progress and I have quite a few products I will be writing about soon. Stay tuned.

Vegan Travel Bloggers

  • This is a list of interesting blogs written by vegan travelers.

Vegan Travel Class

  • I taught a Vegan Travel Class at REI in Austin, Texas. I’m not sure if I have plans to teach another one, but if so…I’ll be posting the event details here.

    Great set of links. If flying to or from Canada – Air Transat offers several specialty meals including Vegan and vegetarian – you just need to call the number of their website at least 72 hours before your flight to book the meal.

    A couple in New York wrote a book and started a vegan travel company. I think that one of them had worked in travel reservations with the airlines before starting off on their own.
    Do you know or recall their names?

    Hi Cristen! What a great site you have put together. I highly, highly recommend the app “VegOut.” It is compiled from Happy Cow data, and will show you where the nearest veg*n and veg*n friendly places are. I think it’s $3, and it’s so worth it. I can’t imagine traveling without it.

    Fantastic advice here for vegetarian (& vegan) travellers. Really appreciated. Just thought I’d leave you this link https://vegetarianvenues.wordpress.com/ – We’re 2 veggies who just launched our own vegetarian blog to give advice to veggie visitors to Madrid, directions for eating out etc. Great work! :)

    Thanks for this article, and your country guides (and beautiful pictures). My friend and I wrote about traveling as vegetarians – I’ve been a vegetarian my whole life, and in some places it’s been a breeze, though other times it’s been really tough – especially in some countries where people have no idea where they’ll get their next meal, I understand they might not be able to afford to be concerned about animal welfare in the way that we are. https://dirtyvagrant.com/traveling-as-a-vegetarian/ I wrote this article after repeatedly accidentally offending and inconveniencing people – nobody wants to do that! I agree, though – we really do open ourselves up to so many new and exciting culinary experiences when we don’t just go for the standard meaty fare.

    Thank you for the Greek Islands Vegan Guide, I absolutely needed that. Just one update: Santorini also has a bar in Perissa called Tranquilo which is the best for a vegan and offers quite a variety of vegan dishes, with staff willing to help you choose (in English!) :)

    Great links! We have been on the road coming up 1 year. Before we left for our trip I read through many articles just like this! They are so helpful for new vegans and veterans alike. I hope our articles inspire vegans to travel more too! I thought I would leave the link if you would like to visit: https://www.uprootingourlives.com

    Vegetarians could try Veggoagogo – a 50 language vegetarian travel translation app available on iOS (https://itunes.com/apps/veggoagogo) and Android (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.client.veggoagogo) platforms. Professionally written translations, no Internet connection required. A simple but very sleek and functional little app. Veganagogo – the vegan version of the app – is due out in June 2015.
