Who We Are

Backed by over 15 years of experience in experiential education and the travel industry, BACK&PACK creates unique travel experiences for solo travelers ages 18 to 30-something.

BACK&PACK was founded by adventurous spirits with a singular focus: to make solo and independent travel experiences more responsible, intentional, authentic, challenging, and affordable.

What We Offer

Small Group Adventures For Solo Travelers
Interested in traveling but have no one to go with? Explore our small group adventures for solo travelers! Make new friendships and lifelong memories while exploring some of the most beautiful destinations in the world.

Self-Guided Trips For Independently-Minded Travelers
Want to go at your own pace and pick your own travel dates but still have the structure and support of a trusted in-country tour operator? Check out our self-guided adventures!

What We Do

BACK&PACK provides global backpackers and gap year travelers with an alternative to mainstream group travel programs.

Our self-guided travel programs combine the fun, freedom, and flexibility of a fully independent travel (FIT) experience with the expert planning, service, and in-country support of a group, inclusive tour (GIT).

In short, we’re the best of both worlds. Join us and gain the resources and travel support you need to succeed abroad, all at a fraction of the cost of a traditional tour.
