Spain, Portugal, and Morocco: three complementary countries that are at the top of any adventurous traveler’s list.
In Portugal, you will be wowed by the vibrant culture and eclectic architecture of Lisbon and Sintra. Soak up the sun and sand at Lagos’ world-class beaches as we kayak through hidden grottoes, snorkel in crystal-clear waters, and watch the sunset at the End of the World! Cross over the border into Spain, where you will wander the quaint cobblestone streets of the Andalusian cities of Seville and Granada, before exploring the capital city of Madrid in all its royal glory. You’ll take traditional dance classes in Seville, tour the gardens of the Alhambra Palace, and even have the chance to get a massage and soak in a traditional Arab bath-house in Granada!
Lastly, a quick flight from Madrid brings you to Morocco to experience life like nothing you’ve seen before. Between ancient cities, gorgeous mountains, and marketplaces beyond your wildest dreams, you’ll see all the ways that these three countries have influenced each other during the past 1,300 years.
Our Older Teens trips are specially designed for any teen who wants to gain a global perspective before heading out into the “real world”. Because as you grow, your interests and needs do too. We are all about a hands-on approach to travel, where we go beyond the casual tourist experience, take public transportation, and learn how daily life really is in each place we visit. We provide a unique and carefully crafted itinerary that allows for more challenges and independence. We encourage teens on these trips to learn how to use international public transport, along with other handy travel skills, so that they become confident and able to take on even more of the world in the future.
