Travel With Purpose. Love Where You Go.

Cross Cultural Journeys provides socially and environmentally responsible travel for individuals and organizations interested in global awareness, indigenous wisdoms and societies at the crossroads.

A portion of the fees we charge for every CCJ trip goes to our sister organization, Cross Cultural Journeys Foundation (a nonprofit 501c3 ) to support nonprofit charitable programs in the places we visit.
