Putting together your ideal Rustic Pathways trip is simple. Just follow the steps lined out below and you’ll be well on your way!

Step 1 – Choose a Destination

Peruse our destinations. With 19 countries to choose from, there’s sure to be at least one that sparks your interest!

Under each of the destinations you will find an overview of some of the experiences available in that country.

All our programs involve elements of:

  • Community service projects
  • Education and global studies
  • Cultural immersion & exchange
  • Adventure & challenge

Consider why you want to travel and what the main focus of your trip should be.

Here are a few things to keep in mind when choosing a destination:

Trip Length – While one week is certainly long enough for a visit within the Asia-Pacific region, you may want to consider a two or three week program if you plan on travelling further afield.

Impact Opportunities – Each country offers different service opportunities. Have a think about whether you want your efforts to benefit people, animals or nature? Do you see your group getting their hands dirty with an infrastructure construction project or is running a holiday program or tutoring students more their vibe? Our programs are centred around specific types of service projects, so take some time to think about what you would enjoy working on, where your skill sets lie, and how much service you want to do.

Step 2 – Connect With Us

Get in contact with us. Share your interests with one of our Group Travel Managers who will design your ideal program. Think of your Group Travel Manager as a personal travel concierge who will help you identify the right type of program, connect you with our country teams, work to your budget, and provide all your pre-travel support. They will be with you every step of the way!

Step 3 – Travel on the Adventure of a Lifetime!

Our outstanding program leaders will meet you at the airport in-country and will have all logistics taken care of. That means all you and your group have to focus on is immersing yourselves in local culture, participating in meaningful service, making new friends and creating lasting memories!
