You’re only young once and those passport pages aren’t going to stamp themselves. It’s time you venture out of your comfort zone and book a long-haul flight to the adventure of a lifetime. Don’t feel like going it alone? Unite with like-minded buddies by joining these travel groups for young adults. Trek through Jordan. Go on a safari in South Africa. Venture into the DMZ on the South Korean border and send your folks a photo they’ll never believe. Do it all while you’re young with these amazing under-30 travel experiences from TRIPS by Culture Trip.
1 . Camp with a Bedouin family in Jordan

Remember the sleepovers of your childhood? Of staying up all night, chatting the hours away? Rekindle that fond feeling during this nine-day Jordanian journey. You’ll join a small travel group for young adults on hikes through the Wadi Ghurab sandstone mountains and camp under the stars with a local Bedouin family. Spend the morning sipping Arabic coffee that you’ve made yourself – and if you fancy a splash of cream in your cup, your hosts will show you how to milk their camel.

2 . Traverse cities, mountains and the DMZ in South Korea

Imagine your parent’s faces when you show them photos from the Demilitarized Zone, a mere 558ft (170m) from the North Korean border. What’s a shocking adventure to them is merely a safe stop on this 10-day trip for young adults through South Korea. You’ll venture from the boozy karaoke bars of Seoul to the bike-friendly roads of Gyeongju. You’ll feast your eyes on the Bulguksa Temple, gorge on bibimbap and return home to show your family and friends the kindness filling South Korea’s borders.

3 . Experience safaris and wine tasting in South Africa

Youth is but a carafe of wine: best shared with friends, enjoyed at leisure and sipped at a fast pace. Raise a glass to being young and drink in the beauty of South Africa on this under-30 travel adventure. The Garden Route’s stunning wetlands, lagoons and forests will leave you in a state of wonder, so much so that you’ll forget you still have Big Five spotting to come. Before your safaris even begin, your schedule will overflow with hiking Table Mountain, stand-up paddleboarding the Cape’s waters, and wine tasting in the Cape Winelands.
