Think of that moment when you arrive at a destination for the first time, feeling the flutter of anticipation of experiencing something new, or meeting someone whose passion moves and enlightens you. This summer, you have an opportunity to meet an impressive lineup of esteemed chefs and culinary experts while exploring the Mediterranean shores aboard one of Atlas Ocean Voyages’ intimate yachts. Be one of only 200 like-minded explorers enjoying culinary demonstrations and tastings on board as well as visits to colourful farmers’ markets or inviting wineries ashore. Enhance your knowledge of European wines, from an aged Nebbiolo to a Beaujolais nouveau, during wine tastings led by local winemakers or sommeliers. These life-changing experiences inevitably inspire a deep sense of camaraderie when shared with a small group of fellow explorers, all having an appreciation for life’s finer pleasures.

Epicurean Expeditions by Atlas
The modern term “epicurean” has come to describe an appreciation for fine food and wine, while the ancient philosophy of Epicurus promoted the pursuit of learning and meaningful conversations with friends. Atlas Ocean Voyages brings you both through a wide range of available 2024 voyages, promising unforgettable experiences for every Epicurean explorer. From Canadian celebrity Chef Massimo Capra to Mamá Cacao, Julieta Davey, who transformed her passion for cacao in Costa Rica into a renowned chocolate brand, you will meet culinary specialists, food historians, passionate pizza masters, Le Cordon Bleu graduates, and other food masters during specialty tastings, culinary presentations, cooking classes, escorted market visits, regional wine tastings, and even exciting pool-side cook-offs.
