A new brand from La Fugue, the specialist in exceptional cultural trips founded nearly 40 years ago by Frédéric Pfeffer, Artrotters is a creator of short-break cultural trips.

"Artrotters differentiates itself from La Fugue by offering short breaks of two to five days, with a unique offer based around an original show from the new scene," explains Chloé Lefevre, head of the brand.
The agency's ambition is to reach out to a younger audience and to become the benchmark for trips focusing on contemporary creation, combining the avant-garde of today's artistic scene with contemporary art and live performances, from opera to musicals, to satisfy the tastes and curiosity of all generations. Without forgetting to maintain a close relationship with its customers, both regulars and newcomers.
The shows are chosen for their originality, blending contemporary art with revisited classics, with guaranteed front-row seats! To add a touch of voluptuousness to these unique stays, a selection of boutique hotels is offered, combining intimate charm with contemporary design. A member of the Arttotters team will accompany participants on every trip.
