Since 2009 we’ve been offering all-inclusive international travel programs for students interested developing real world travel skills while exploring some of the world's most interesting places as part of a small group.
Our programs seize every opportunity to practice foreign language, navigation, scheduling, collaboration, and budgeting skills with real world activities like cross-referencing street and metro maps, purchasing transit passes, researching opening days/times, navigating an itinerary and staying on schedule, choosing restaurants and making reservations, and eating well while staying within a meal allowance.


Stay in a Bed & Breakfast Cottage at the heart of the “Emerald Isle” and explore a different part of the island over the course of five days. You'll see busy city streets, rolling green hills, spectacular glacial valleys with lakes and waterfalls, awe-inspiring cliffs, Norman castles, Viking churches, and ancient illustrated Christian texts.
Fly to the “Land of Ice and Fire” and spend two days exploring the south of the island visiting stunning waterfalls, swimming in thermal pools, and hiking across a glacier, black sand beach and volcano crater!
