Rustic Trips are open-enrolment travel programs for high school students. There are over 90 of these programs available around the globe during June and July. Students sign up for these programs individually and then travel with other students from around the world, guided by our trained program leaders. These programs are run by our USA office.
Don’t worry – you won’t really be on your own. Everyone else on the program will be in the same boat as you, and you’ll quickly make friends. After many of our Rustic Trips, students tell us that the other “strangers” on their program have become life-long friends. Think of this as an incredible opportunity to meet new people, and have a once-in-a-lifetime experience shared with great new friends! You can also sign up with a friend from home, if you’d prefer to travel with someone you know.
