Do you have a group of people who you enjoy spending time with each week? Are you ready to change up your routine? Mix things up by planning a group trip!
There are a lot of advantages to group travel. Group trips are an awesome way to make memories and bond with others, whether you elect to travel with people who you are already close with or people who you are just getting to know. The social aspect of group travel is one of the biggest draws. It is easy to connect with others and make lifelong friends on a group trip! Traveling with a large group can also lower the cost of the trip, provide you with improved flexibility, and help you feel more confident in exploring. Like using social media? As an added bonus, group travel means that you will always have a photographer!   
There is a trip that is perfect for every group - and if the ideal trip doesn’t already exist, then there are endless ways to craft a custom trip that suits your group’s needs. We encourage groups to contact us if they would like to create a unique and unforgettable trip. We work with a wide range of interests, so don’t be shy about reaching out!
Groups we’ve worked with before include…
  • Hiking & Outdoor Recreation clubs
  • Dinner clubs
  • Alumni groups
  • Fitness clubs
  • Birdwatching groups
  • And a variety of other special interest groups
We love tailoring trips around common interests, ranging from broad interests like women-led travel to specific interests such as stargazing or hiking, so tell us what your group likes and we will incorporate it into the trip. Group travel is your chance to escape the norm and immerse yourself in your passions with like-minded individuals, and we want to help you make the most of the opportunity.
Birdwatching groups might be interested in traveling to Ecuador; between the Galapagos Islands and the Ecuadorian cloud forest you’re sure to find more than a few new species. Hiking clubs may want to tackle trails in Chile’s iconic Torres del Paine National Park. History buffs might prioritize a visit to Machu Picchu in Peru. The ability to customize a trip makes it more meaningful and memorable.
Don’t have a specific interest, just a great group? We can still customize a trip or help you find one that sounds interesting to everyone. By the end of the experience, your group may uncover a new, common passion to plan your next trip around.
We know that group travel can be daunting. It can be stressful to plan an adventure when those involved have different schedules, budgets, and vacation preferences. All travelers have different desires and limitations that deserve consideration in planning, and making sure that everyone is satisfied can be draining. That’s where Southern Explorations can help! Having planned trips for over fifteen thousand travelers in South America we’re ready to apply our experience and expertise to your group.
This is the year to plan a customized group trip. You won’t regret it!
