A Tour of Tuscany: Vineyards, Villages, and Vino

June 09 to June 16, 2023

 (ONE ROOM LEFT!) This is quintessential Tuscany! We stay in our very own vegan villa eating the most exquisite plant-based cuisine. A trip for foodies indeed! What’s more: medieval hill-towns, spectacular vistas, vibrant cities, and an animal sanctuary visit!

Northern Italy Mountains, Lakes, and Canals

June 18 to June 27, 2023

 (ONE ROOM LEFT!) Mountains (hiking in the Italian Alps!), lakes (boating on Lake Garda), and canals (Gondolas in the one and only Venice). A trip for all the senses, you do not want to miss this adventure.

Vegan French Countryside with Colleen Patrick-Goudreau Vegan French Countryside with Colleen Patrick-Goudreau

French Countryside: Idyllic Villages and Valleys

September 02 to September 10, 2023

Starting in Paris and ending in Bordeaux, the bulk of this amazing journey is in the rolling hills of the Loire Valley and breathtaking Dordogne, regions filled with castles, chateaux, prehistoric caves, and cuisine that is typically loaded with animal products. But not with us! On this trip, you get to experience the beauty of these regions while enjoying local cuisine — vegan style. PLUS, we visit the first European sanctuary for rescued elephants!

Vegan Christmas in Alsace with Colleen Patrick-Goudreau Vegan Christmas in Alsace with Colleen Patrick-Goudreau

Magical Christmas in Alsace, France

December 10 to December 17, 2023

The heart of this trip is the magic of the Christmas markets in the most adorable villages you’ve ever seen. We tuck into our own medieval villa for the length of the trip and explore everything this region has to offer: castles, wine, cobblestone-lined villages, fairy lights, and Alsatian fare — all plant-based! Come hungry! We also venture into the Black Forest to visit a wolf and bear sanctuary and give belly rubs to pigs at a farm animal sanctuary.

Possible 2024 Trips

We are already talking about 2024 trips and events, and while nothing is guaranteed, I would love to gauge your interest.

Destination Retreat to Whistler, British Columbia Destination Retreat to Whistler, British Columbia

Joyful Vegan Conference in Whistler, British Columbia

September 2024

I’m considering hosting my 5th Joyful Vegan Conference — this time in Whistler, British Columbia as a “destination retreat,” which would combine the best of our Joyful Vegan Trips and my Joyful Vegan Conferences.

We’re imagining a 6-day retreat of talks, workshops, and cooking demonstrations interspersed between:

  • hiking in the mountains
  • canoeing on an alpine lake
  • riding on the famous Peak-to-Peak gondola (longest-span gondola in the world)
  • a bear viewing tour (yes, bears!)
  • a Whistler food tour
  • a night walk experience through the wondrous Vallea Lumina
  • a campfire cookout
  • free time to enjoy a spa, cultural walking tour, additional hike, or bike ride
Let me know if you’re interested in a 2024 Joyful Vegan Conference in Whistler, British Columbia! I’ll be in touch once I know more.
