“Happy tourists” is the first and unique travel agency inviting tourists to “get lost”.
We believe that discovery is more about personal experiences than expected outcome. We subvert the codes of the tourism industry to design creative impulses which set people in motion without giving them destinations. It offers frameworks which distract tourists from attractions, emphasise drifting in the unknown, and allow for unexpected encounters.
In Prespa, our special drifts generator will create some random situations to send you in the unknown on unguided tours. It should result in journeys which are personal, unplanned, rewarding, authentic, not guaranteed but allow you to discover the beauty in the common and the surprise in the everyday.
After your trip, we will meet and discuss the souvenirs and stories and exhibit them in a parody of a tourist information center.

Happy tourists is a provocative, disruptive artistic project created in 2018 with the objective to raise awareness on how mass tourism impacts cities and the environment, and to imagine and experiment new ways to be (or not to be) a tourist . With the pandemic, Happy Tourists became the perfect place to experiment how artistic practice can help change perspective on our surrounding and therefore overcome the current inability to travel.
