Burger King Launches 35 Day Global ‘Burger Pilgrimage'

— May 16, 2009 — World
Thanks to Burger King, the world’s first Burger Pilgrimage went on sale this week spanning 16 cities, eight countries and three continents.

The UK is fast becoming a nation obsessed with our stomachs, with two thirds of Brits choosing a holiday purely based on food. Travelers hungry for the ultimate taste bud adventure, however, can now whet their appetite with the world’s first trip of gastronomic proportion – The Burger Pilgrimage. Launching online today, this adventure traces the origins of one of the most ancient foodstuffs – the burger!

The Burger Pilgrimage Trip was devised by BURGER KING with the help of leading food historian Caroline Yeldham. It takes food aficionados on a journey to the birthplaces and cities pivotal to the evolution of the burger. The Burger Pilgrimage takes over 35 days to complete and is available to buy from STA Travel shops for a whopping £3,400.

While this trip could be a tasty option for travelers hungry for a new adventure, the price might be difficult to stomach, so bite-sized trips are also on offer starting from £149.
Trend Themes
1. Gastronomic Tourism - There is a growing trend of travelers choosing their holiday destinations based on food, presenting an opportunity for businesses in the tourism industry to offer unique culinary experiences.
2. Food History Experiences - There is a trend of consumers seeking out experiences that explore the origins and evolution of popular food items, creating opportunities for businesses to offer educational and immersive culinary tours.
3. Bite-sized Adventures - There is a demand for shorter and more affordable food-focused trips, giving businesses in the travel industry a chance to offer convenient and budget-friendly gastronomic experiences.
Industry Implications

3. Travel - The demand for bite-sized adventures presents a chance for travel agencies and tour operators to offer shorter and more affordable food-focused trips that cater to travelers' culinary interests.
