Rural experiences for Urban hearts.
Choose from a host of offbeat locations and travel experiences.
Nativefolks is all about the native folks.
Nativefolks is a social enterprise. With us you get to explore the wideness of sight and soul of rural India. You can connect with the local communities and experience the local customs and traditions first-hand. Above all you get to experience a more meaningful and responsible form of travel
Travel experiences crafted with love, weaved around traditions, food, art, music and
indigenous ways of village life.
Our rural Indian destinations are ideal if you are looking to walk away from your nine-to-five jobs into swaying paddy fields with grazing cattle, far-flung mountains, unique festivals, the sun-kissed beaches and time-honoured traditions
We empower village communities with the help of rural tourism. This increases exposure to local Indian arts, heritage and culture which in turn opens up alternate livelihood opportunities for the villagers, thereby rejuvenating the local economy.
At the same time, we offer travelers homestay, day experience and immersive journey options that allow them to get a glimpse of their host’s lives and the cultural heritage.
Me and my husband spent 4 wonderful days, last April in Goa with Nativefolks.
We stayed in a farm homestay in Netravali where we got to stay with a lovely family in such a peaceful and genuine environment. The food was delicious and we highly appreciated the experience of the local folk dance at night.
In Divar we stayed in a huge, comfortable apartment from where it was very easy to visit Old Goa and Panjim by ferry. Our cycling trip around Divar was very pleasant thanks to the knowledgeable guide who showed us a lot of beautiful landscapes and interesting things.
Thanks to Nativefolks for paying special attention to satisfy us, we really enjoyed our stay in Goa !

Thank You Nativefolks for a perfectly planned amazing vacation… Cheers!!!
We enjoyed a homely and pleasant trip on the island of Divar. Morning fresh breeze on the lovely island, bird watching in bike, tasty food made by the host aunty and travel by ferry rides was a new and memorable experience. We also cherish the visit to ancient churches and the hot sun bath in beach. My fellow traveller enjoyed the stay thoroughly and is waiting for next holidays to visit Goa again. He also knows the address by heart. Special thanks for your lovely gift and your good guidance.
“My Solkadi experience was truly a humbling, warm and delicious one! It takes a certain kind of heart, intention and the ability to create such an experience where the guests and the hosts who are meeting for the first time share a meaningful time so effortlessly. I had the pleasure of being hosted last week at an ancestral abode named Shaloam in Divar Island, Goa, where the Silveira family so generously opened their home to me and my wife and prepared an unforgettable feast of local Goan delicacies. I’m deeply grateful to Nativefolks for adding a very special experience in my repertoire of cherished memories and I look forward to more such moments.”
“We loved our stay here! We had heard great things about the food, view and the hosts before coming but this totally exceeded our expectations. Tea on the porch at sunset, the lights of Sikkim twinkling and of course endless momos! Thank you so much for providing us with a home away from home, we wish we dint have to leave. Hopefully we will come back again soon.. ”
Thank you Nativefolks for everything. I was happy during my Goa visit. Both the places Comba and Netravali exceeded my expectations. I had wonderful time there and brought a lot of things home. I got my confidence back that yup I can to anything. My routine is changed after coming back from there. Saying thank you is nothing. But I am feeling happy, strong, confident, courageous, fearless, respect my self and in love with me again because of you. I am very much grateful to Nativefolks. In whole trip I called the team many times to go to places where I wanted to be and they helped me with the best they can because Goa is huge. I am very much thankful from bottom of my heart to the entire team of Nativefolks.
