A family-owned business, Journeys International was founded in 1978 by Drs. Joan and Will Weber. Their daughter, Robin, now runs the business. “Because we are family owned and operated, relationships have always been at the heart of our business. We carry that value into relationships with our ground partners throughout the world and with our clients, creating immersive experiences in diverse cultures, natural areas, and wildlife reserves,” Robin noted.

Journeys International builds trips that turn travel into an extraordinary adventure that sparks human connection, personal insight, global awareness, and the courage to be yourself.
