Dear Architectural Enthusiasts,

As the highest global travel warnings are still in place, and since there is still so much that is unknown about the COVID-19 virus, the remaining tours scheduled for 2020 have been canceled.

Additionally, as it is not clear when we can recommend safely traveling again—and as AIA is continuing to prioritize its focus on the imperative issues of Climate Action as well as Equity & Inclusion—we are dedicating as many resources as possible to these endeavors during these pivotal moments.

For these reasons and others, AIA will no longer be offering Architectural Adventures tours.

However, as you think about travel for 2021 and beyond, we recommend that you explore the approximately 100 tour offerings of National Trust Tours. For 2021, select National Trust Tours have been created with input from Architectural Adventures. The land tours, each led by an AIA member, will visit Japan, Sicily, and Cuba. Additionally, there will be three cruises, each led by an AIA or RIBA member: European Coastal Civilizations, Springtime in Provence, and Danube: Vienna to the Black Sea. Each of these six tours, along with select others, will be eligible for AIA Learning Units.

Since our launch in 2016, Architectural Adventures has successfully operated over 25 tours in 21 countries for over 400 travelers! We thank you for your interest and for being a part of our community!

We wish you good health and amazing adventures in the years to come.
