Thrillist has enlisted veteran travel architect Academic Travel Abroad to curate immersive itineraries for Thrillist’s intellectually curious and adventurous travelers. Thrillist’s exclusive licensing agency, Seltzer Licensing Group, helped broker the deal between Thrillist and Academic Travel Abroad.

The first two trips were open for booking on Feb 3., with the first trips departing in 2020. The partnership marks Thrillist’s first foray into international travel excursions.

“At Thrillist we offer our readers a travel expertise that has only deepened over time,” says Ocean MacAdams, president, Thrillist. “It just made sense for us to create our own curated trips leveraging our hyper-local knowledge for our fans. We tapped into our massive, engaged community of global travelers to identify the most desirable travel destinations and activities that people have been seeking out.”

Thrillist will create a series of travel packages starting with Mole and Mezcal: a Taste of Oaxaca in Mexico and The Best of Marrakesh: Day to Night in Marrakesh, Morocco.  Thrillist is looking to create additional trips for 2021.
