Voluntours: An exciting new world of travel!

Voluntours: If you love travelling to new places but have the urge to do more than just see the sights, the concept of “voluntouring” might be perfect for you.

Also known as volunteer vacationing, voluntouring combines travel with a professional vocation and appeals to people who:

  1. Have a strong interest in a particular cause, project, or field;
  2. Are looking for an authentic experience than being a tourist;
  3. Want to “give back” to communities.

There is something to suit everyone, from young people seeking a different experience in their “gap year” to professionals contemplating a sabbatical. For medical and health professionals, the options are endless.

You should be aware that voluntouring can involve working in remote or politically unstable regions, so a willingness to work in these conditions may be required.
