Qalendra is an active travel calendar that lists festivals and events throughout the world according to their corresponding date and location.
Qalendra was designed to inspire individuals to follow through on their travel goals. The site displays a collection of festivals, events, and date-specific activities on an interactive calendar that changes on a monthly basis. Each day, Qalendra organizes a variety of events taking place in unique locations around the world. Festivals such as the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally, the Sterling Renaissance Festival and Romanian’s Anonimus Film Fesitval, for instance, were all featured on August 9, 2014. Each day, of course, offers something new and exciting. The site also allows users to personalize their recommendations for events by selecting certain travel preferences and interests.
In addition to its recommendation service, Qalendra also allows individuals to book trips. After entering your departure airport as one of your travel preferences, Qalendra can display travel deals to the festivals and events it lists. The site has partnered with travel sites such as Expedia, Skyscanner , Viator and WorldNomads.com in order to make the booking process smoother. With the assistance of these third-party platforms, Qalendra users can book hotels, flights and activities. Of course, Qalendra’s main strength is actually finding awesome things for travelers to do, and each activity or event has a dedicated page with tons of information. Each page includes videos, maps, descriptions and a relative cost and adventure rating. If you’re looking for unique travel experiences in exotic locations around the world, Qalendra has tons of great ideas.
