The emerging Experience Economy will have interesting implications for experience production within tourism. By integrating theoretical frameworks of the Experience Economy with the context of Transmodern tourism, this paper explores concept of transformational offerings into meaningful and learning experiences that contribute to a sustainable world. Based on theoretical frameworks from Experiential Learning, Tildenian interpretation, Experiencescapes and Maslow´s hierarchy of human needs, a Total Experience Management model of experience production has been developed. This model of TEM could be a tool to transform the Erlebnis aspects of the experience into meaningful Erfahrung and Life Experiences. In the context of sustainability and the intention of Agenda 21 the transformational aspects of experiences can be applied to transform tourists into an engagement of sustainability issues. Nature based tourism can thereby develop innovative themes of transformations within the transformational offerings and economy proposed by Pine and Gilmore 1999.
