What are Under30Experiences?
We bring 12 - 20 people under the age of 35 to build friendships, stories and memories of a lifetime.
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.
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 dive into local cultures, tell stories over fires on the beach, learn salsa dancing into the early morning hours all with people you will call friends by the last day.
“I came out of this trip with a foundation of knowledge, friendship, and an incredible experience. I can’t believe you can jam that much fun into 5 days.” - Carla Blumenthal, Nicaragua April 2013

After graduating from the University of Texas at Austin, Courtney knew there was a world of adventure waiting for her to explore and has never looked back. When she isn't taking photos you can usually find her on the lookout for a great cup of coffee, a new mountain to snowboard or a body of water to jump into. Courtney is the resident photographer and videographer for Under30Experiences.

Jared O’Toole graduated Ithaca College with a finance degree and like so many other business majors he quickly realized corporate life was not a path for him. Instead, he got passionate about entrepreneurship, branding and how companies could leverage new media tools online.
