Few things are as gripping as a myth or legend. They create a unique mysticism about a place, drenching it in intrigue and adding another irresistible dimension to a destination. They never fail to enchant or captivate, their stories, achievements and legacies writ large in local folklore. As travellers, they prod our inquisitiveness and beckon us to unearth their secrets.

With that in mind, we’ve created a series of exclusive SevenTravel trips that tap into the deep cultural history of each place, filled with experiences accompanied by experts in the know that cast a light on their local myth or legend. We’ll explore well-known legends like the wide-ranging legacies of the Romans to those you may not even have heard of, like the Hindu priest Dang Hyang Nirartha in Bali. It’s time to set off on your own legendary trip…


From the American frontier to the magnetism of the baobab in South Africa, join us on a trip to unravel the secrets behind some of the world's most intriguing myths and legends.
