Guatemala - As Green As It Gets - source Viaventure med.jpg

Philanthropy really is a strong ethic that most of us have and we are finding, wonderfully, that so many more of our clients are wanting to do more than observe at a distance, but rather get involved.

There are so many fabulous, charitable projects that The Explorations Company is involved in, both conservation and community led, which our clients can visit and be a part of – from clinics, to schools, to hospitals, to self-improvement, to conservation projects.

These we can incorporate into any holiday that you arrange with us. However, voluntourism has really taken hold for those who would like to make a meaningful contribution. Most of these will incorporate a skill that you already have – building, bricklaying, teaching, medical, surgical – any much more besides!

We have selected just a few fantastic itineraries below where voluntourism plays a key part, then added some other ideas to complement your holiday beautifully! As always, each of our holidays is entirely bespoke, tailored around your interests.
