What are Under30Experiences?
We bring thirty people under the age of 35 to build friendships, stories and memories of a lifetime.
Wednesday - Sunday trips mean only three days off from work or school, and flexible payment plans allow you to make your dreams reality.
Our mission is to make travel more fun, stress free and accessible to young people.
We believe our generation needs to see the world in order to understand it.
We're not a travel company, we're an experience company.
We design the best possible adventures in exotic locations and take care of you every step of the way. It's our job to maximize fun with the best possible itineraries.
