Global Explorers Programs

We work with groups of middle school, high school and college-aged students and their educators from schools and organizations of all types. We also work with families and affinity travel groups. Group size varies from trip to trip, but Global Explorers creates an experience tailor made for you. We do not combine your trip with unrelated individuals or other groups for economy's sake. One educator travels for free with the first 10 paying participants, and one for every 5 paying participants thereafter. Learn more about how our group programs work in the Educators section.

If you are an individual student interested in traveling with Global Explorers, please visit the For Individual Travelers section. Individual students ages 14-24 who are not a part of an organization can travel with us in many different programs. If you would like to help form a group at your school, contact us and we'll make it happen.
