Small Group Scheduled Give Back Adventures

Children cycling in Nepal

 

Oooops, looks like your search has taken you to last years page. Click on this link to visit our 2014 group trip ideas or click here to gain inspiration form our brochure.

 

Small group voluntourism adventures are ideal if you are traveling on your own, or just like the interaction and comaraderie that comes with traveling with other people, want to enjoy incredible sights, and make a difference for those less fortunate. Accommodation is in superb 4-5* hotels throughout, so you get to retain your creature comforts even when hard at work during the day.

The trips you will find on this page are all scheduled to depart on fixed dates (subject to a minimum number of people) so the itineraries cannot be changed (if you would prefer a tailor-made trip to meet your exact preferences, click here) but you will still receive excellent service and be led by one of our fabulous local guides who will share their knowledge and expertise to make your trip amazing.

The hands-on giving back experience of each of these trips typically focuses on a building project, such as a house for a family in need of a decent place to live. These projects are designed to be completed within the time frame of your trip - giving you an incredible sense of achievement that you will treasure.
