We travel to incredible places that others overlook, like a pinball paradise hidden in a Brooklyn laundromat, or an abandoned saucer-shaped monument in the mountains of Bulgaria.
Locals and Insiders
Atlas Obscura's global community of explorers, artists, researchers, and local experts will grant you access to unique places and incredible experiences.
Come with your own interests and curiosities. We'll give you the freedom to explore them.
The Atlas Obscura Community
Over the years, we have built a global community of curious explorers. Our trips are inspired by the 15,000 unique places and foods they—or perhaps you—have contributed to Atlas Obscura.
What Our Travelers Are Saying
An awesome, unusual trip. Something we'd never do on our own.
A once-in-a-lifetime adventure to places you've only read about or seen in documentaries.
I was beautifully bombarded with history, architecture, religion, art, politics, poetry, and meat every day.
Spotting an Andean Cock-of-the-Rock during one of our hikes was definitely a highlight for me!
Amazing opportunity to experience the rainforest with people who are knowledgeable about and who get truly excited by plants, animals, birds, insects and spiders; and who care deeply about conserving the environment and fragile ecosystems; and want to support sustainable practices around ecotourism.
