Educational Travel – Educational Vacations

Educational Travel is about enjoying a Flamenco show after touring the workshop of one of the few true flamenco (and classical) guitar makers left on the planet, and learning from him about the incredible art and skill that goes into this treasured aspect of Andalucían culture…

Sipping award winning coffee, made by the man you met earlier: a charismatic second generation coffee grower who shared with you his story of essentially letting his farm go wild in order to make it completely sustainable…

Using the Spanish you learned that morning to purchase fresh produce at an outdoor market in Andalucia, before hiking Cerro Gordo for a stunning view of the azure Mediteranean Sea and a picnic lunch near an ancient Moorish lookout tower…

educational vacation is about strolling through an avian paradise, observing up close the nesting behavior and courtship rituals of the frigates and blue-footed boobies-creatures entirely unique to the Galapagos-while learning about the park’s land iguana reintroduction program…

This is quintessential Chill Expeditions
educational vacation. Language, culture, biology, history, ecology, conservation and service are interwoven with authentic connections, active engagement, adrenaline-rushes of fun, and opportunities to be inspired by visionaries working for change. From individual choices to community impact to country politics to global effects, our experiential vacations will give you pause by providing a real-life perspective. The traditional approach to educational travel assumes a trip has a specific emphasis, and everything else is just bonus points. However, we believe that the most effective educational travel approach provides a more comprehensive perspective, where all aspects are woven together in order to create a story that makes sense to the traveler. This is why so many schools and families choose to travel with us year after year.

On our educational vacations our professional local guides provide much more than facts, information, and direction. They customize your expedition to address central themes and act as your gateway to a true, authentic cultural experience. Such thoughtful planning and execution allow you to enjoy full engagement in the experience, the stunning surroundings, and—perhaps most importantly—your fellow travelers.

We would love to find out more about you so that we can customize an experiential travel itinerary for you and begin the conversation that will result in your ideal experiential expedition. Call us today to plan an experience that will take you Beyond A Vacation.
