Fathom celebrates all the reasons why we pack our bags, get on a plane, hitch a ride, and explore beyond our backyards.

Fathom is the travel website reinvented — through inspiring stories, practical advice, and useful tools and products. Fathom is where world-curious travelers indulge their passion for travel — whether they're getting on a plane tomorrow or staying at their laptop.

A little movie about us.

We created this site for those who tour the world spontaneously and deliberately. Who combine business with pleasure and familiarity with curiosity. Who love new discoveries as well as old classics.

We focus on places we like, writers we trust, and stories that move us. We'll inspire you and give you the practical advice and insider tips to hit the ground running.

Have a Look Around

Postcards are articles, photo galleries, and videos around a unifying "I Travel for the ..." theme: I Travel for the Food, I Travel for the Stuff, I Travel for the Thrill, I Travel for the Kids. We want your postcards, too.

Guides include:
- lists of special and essential hotels, restaurants, shops, and sites the reflect the full spectrum of a destination, mixing old favorites with new finds at varying price points;
- itineraries like It's My First Time, Here on Business, Best Day Ever, With the Kids;
- Cheat Sheets provide essential knowledge about money, transportation, tipping, holidays;
- Local Color links to blogs, news sites, literary excerpts, books, and movies.

Tools gathers links to resources that make travel easier. Think of this as a sewing kit in your hotel room: You may not need it, but you'll be glad it's there when you lose a button.

Shop is a curated collection of travel-related products. You can browse by destination (Paris, New Orleans), activity (beach, spa), and category (gadgets, novels). Just because you can't get to London doesn't mean London can't come to you.

The Team
