Custom Programs

Programs Handcrafted for Your Group

We recognize that different travellers have different needs.

Are you a student looking to organize an alternative spring break for your campus club? An educator developing an international course module to complement your existing curriculum? A young professional planning a corporate retreat? Backpacking isn’t the only way to have an ethical, immersive travel experience. We have years of experience creating programs for groups who want to get their hands dirty during the day but are looking for a warm, comfortable bed at night.

How Does it Work?

Our dedicated staff will work with you to create a custom itinerary that is intimate and innovative while meeting the distinct interests and needs of your group. Programs can range from a few days to months and can include volunteer projects, immersive homestays, off-the-grid treks, and much more.

Developing your own program begins by filling out a preliminary interest form (scroll below!) to give us a better idea of what you’re looking for. Once we’ve received this, we will get in touch with you to establish your program’s goals and design an itinerary. With your direction, we will liaise with in-country personnel and partners to create a program that embodies your vision and OG’s philosophy of ethical travel.

What’s Included?

Our organization was founded on the principle of accessibility. We develop affordable programs that pack in full days of adventure, cross-cultural dialogue, and meaningful community service.

From the modest office where we’ll plan your adventure to the fresh licuado you’ll savour in Guatemala, your program fee secures a high-quality experience for a reasonable price.

Experienced Leaders

We pride ourselves on building teams of experienced and dynamic leaders, masterful facilitators, energetic storytellers, and all around passionate and caring human beings.

Pre-Program Preparation

We’ll make sure your group is properly prepared for their trip. We will provide program packages and ethical travel primers, as well as orient your group on health and safety procedures.

Support from OGHQ

Our staff at head office is here to support you for any questions or concerns!

All In-Country Logistics

We’ll carefully arrange all your meals, lodging and accommodations, projects and activities, and emergency support. We’ll even cover the technical gear and language study, if required.

Community Contribution

Community contributions directly support local grassroots organizations that we’re partnered with on the ground. From helping to rehabilitate endangered elephants to supporting literacy programs, we strive to make a lasting impact.
