Travel to Experience Culture, History and Heritage
Enrich your travels. Learn about indigenous traditions and cultures and how they influence our modern world.
The cool North of Finland, Greenland, Iceland, Scotland, Ireland, Norway, Sweden and the Faroe Islands has a rich and varied heritage. When this heritage is viewed through the lens of anthropology and sociology, we can make connections between our past, present and future for a greater understanding and appreciation of the world we live in.
From historic Viking ships to the distinctive Fair Isle patterns and vibrant modern-day Inuit communities, there is a wealth of authentic traditional knowledge to be explored and acquired.
Travelling and learning across different communities helps us to understand how different peoples are shaped by their environment: how they behave, communicate, and socialise across history and geographies.
“The kind of knowledge anthropology teaches is invaluable, not least in our turbulent, globalised age, in which people of different backgrounds come into contact with each other in unprecedented ways and in a multitude of settings, from tourism and trade to migration and organisational work.”
Why Anthropology Matters, European Association of Social Anthropologists

Social anthropology is the subdiscipline of anthropology that investigates the cultural properties of human societies. Topics include cultural norms, morals, laws and customs, and there is a particular focus on the comparative study of non-industrialised societies.
The study of the development, structure, and functioning of human society.
