Custom Trip Planning for Religious & Spiritual Groups

Religious and spiritual groups come to Journeys International because of our deep understanding of the transformative potential of travel, our tailor-made itineraries that adapt to the goals of each group, and how easy we make it to manage the details of a trip.

We respect and appreciate the wonderful diversity of people on this planet, and it is an honor for us to work with groups who want to connect with their own traditions and also learn about people different from themselves by stepping outside their familiar worlds and exploring beyond their comfort zones. The adventure specialists at Journeys would love to learn more about your group’s perspectives and practices by collaborating on your unique adventure.

What Journeys Offers to Religious & Spiritual Groups

  • Deep network and resources around the world to connect you to unique opportunities for exploration and activities in line with your goals
  • Unique combination of expertise in adventure travel, experience design, experiential education, group dynamics, and strategy – so we know how to manage the details of travel and also how to craft a meaningful and effective experience that brings together participants and achieves goals
  • Customized experiences designed specifically for your goals
  • A private group coordinator who will work with you every step of the way and manage every detail of your trip; choose someone of your own faith if you prefer – our adventure specialists are Christian, Buddhist, Jewish, and unaffiliated
  • Collaboration on materials to help group members prepare for the trip – both in understanding the destination, and in reflecting on their own place in the world
  • Adaptive pricing structure to cover costs required by your organization
  • Options for registration, payment, and service depending on your organization’s needs
  • Flexibility in every aspect, whether it’s group size, destination, activities, meeting space, meals, lodging, staffing, insurance coverage, or anything else
