Worldwide Student Travel

With partners in Ecuador, Peru, Tanzania, Nepal or Spain, our connections give you easy access to a robust immersive experience. We provide safe, friendly, and authentic hands-on experience with local communities around the world.

Expert leaders: Our trip leaders are skilled in global travel, wilderness adventure, and ethical education. They create magical, mobile “micro-communities” that appropriately challenge the group, while adeptly caring for the physical and emotional needs of the participants.

Locations: Gogi trips select sites of supreme natural beauty, historical and contemporary relevance, and cultural intrigue.

Authenticity: Our network of global hosts is personal and unique. Whether living in a traditional Maasai village or on an Andean social work initiative, our leaders and hosts nourish meaningful connections between participants and locals.

Customized Itineraries: Gogi isn’t a canned program - instead, it is an opportunity to create a unique experience for your group that aligns with your mission and meets curricular, personal, or group goals.

Constellation of Support: From pre-trip planning to updates from the road  to post-trip reflection, our team provides superior support that inspires confidence in new and seasoned travelers.

“Dear Gogi Abroad , There is no amount of ‘Thank you’ cards or gift baskets or letters that could truly express how much this trip meant to me. I just want you to know how much I appreciate your kindness and your amazing ability to reach out into the open and come up with these great resources that have the capacity to change a person’s life forever. I know that I’ll always remember working on the farm and in the garden. I’ll never forget the thrilling adventures of the caves or the exhausting experience of the five-hour hike. And I’ll always think of my kind host family and their gentle San Clemente when I remember Ecuador.” - Student, Class trip to Ecuador

With the support of Gogi Abroad, my students became independent and resourceful in an unfamiliar place. They moved through the exciting challenges of international travel and then adapted to indigenous home-stays with host families, all while discovering their own sense of confidence. After a morning of chopping wood, one of my students said “I feel so capable.” This trip surpassed our hopes and dreams and provided an essential step in the growth of my students.

Gogi Abroad will organize all of the logistics of the trip and the teacher or administrator from your school can participate and witness their students excited to learn more about the world, themselves, and their place in the world. Our Gogi guides have a role of being nourishing and  we support students, teachers, and families preparing for the trip.
