Cajun Heartland ...The Soul of Louisiana

SPICE UP YOUR TRAVEL LIFE ON THIS 14 DAY WHIRLWIND TOUR OF CAJUN CULTURE, CUISINE and tradition on this Heart and Soul Caravan! Directly following Fantasy’s Mardi Gras Rally we’ll kick-up-our-heels to Zydeco Beats and
satisfy our cravings for authentic Cajun Fare. This unique and diverse tour begins in the heart of New Orleans. Behind the backdrop of historical architecture and traditional foods is the unique ‘Big Easy’ experience with a rich medley of sights, sounds and the culture of the Cajun.

Travel the deep south of Louisiana, exploring Bayous and the unique qualities of southern living. Encounter magnificent plantation homes, classic shrimp boats and the expansive Mississippi River. Hop aboard an airboat to explore swamplands and come face-to-face with marshy inhabitants. We’ve even arranged for dance lessons to welcome you to the classic styles of local, ethnic rhythms.

Join us as we celebrate the zesty heritage of the unique Cajun traditions. When added to the Mardi Gras Rally, Fantasy will include three nights of complimentary camping before the caravan begins.
