We are both a global network of companies that help travellers find unique ways to experience a destination through local tourism professionals, and a technology provider to those local tourism operators. WHL Group companies empower local partners who have practice in experiential and mindful travel, and a local's knack for identifying, explaining and sustaining the distinctive qualities of a place.
The Travel Word
The Travel Word is the online mouthpiece of the WHL Group and pulls from a vast pool of ideas generated by WHL Group companies, local partners, suppliers and more. Through anecdotes, articles, profiles, opinion pieces and news, it showcases innovative and ethical tourism projects and practices.
Local Travel Movement
The Local Travel Movement was started by a coalition of people from companies founded on a passion for Local Travel and commitment to Local Travel values. The site which was cofounded by the WHL Group is part of an attempt to rally Local Travel organisations, experts and practitioners.
