WANDERLAND!

Fair Trade Travel -- Our efforts specifically support local economies.  As a socially responsible organization we foment local autonomy and agency by working exclusively with trusted local families and small professional local outfitters.  Not only are your guides and hosts native to the area where you travel, you can be assured that much of your investment in your travel stays in the very same locations where your course of study and adventures take place.  This is the essence of Fair Trade tourism.  In this way your travel dollars stimulate a sustainable local travel industry.

Educational Travel -- Each program features both a learning and an adventure curriculum.  Our guides are hand-picked educators: natural historians and geographers and capable group facilitators who will help to bring the lands where you travel to life.

Voluntourism -- Wanderland offers several very relevant and enjoyable Volunteer Vacations for your family, school group or club, and for individuals as well.  We provide you with memorable and impactful projects combined with locally-sourced explorations of each region where you volunteer.

School Study Trips -- Wanderland has many options in the Americas for your High School or College courses to explore the geography and interact with the people of our amazing world.  We offer courses of study for foreign students to come the U.S. and for U.S. students to study abroad.

Exploring Wanderland -- Wanderland.org wants you to learn about, to love, and to protect the regions where we offer our field courses.

Exciting and enlightening experiences in the parks, preserves, conservancy lands, biosphere reserves, world heritage sites, bio-gems, and natural monuments of our unique planet. Our programs will guide you on a trajectory from the Western United States to the Tip of South America, learning through experiences and activities.

Wandering with a Purpose -- The ancient Greek word for "Planet" means "Wanderer".   Greek astronomers observed certain heavenly bodies moving unusually while other stars were fixed in place and called them πλανήτης, planētēs in Latin, Planets.  While other stars stood still, the wanderers floated about the heavens.  Take a lesson from the planets and wander with Wanderland, learning our own planet inside and out.

Our hope is that your experiences with Wanderland will warm both your heart and mind, both while we travel together and long after the trip has finished.
