Our goal is to make travel organized and successful, even for the teen who has never traveled without their family. We recommend all participants use the Bold Earth travel service. Booking through our travel office is beneficial for successful group arrivals and departures and to ensure smooth and coordinated globe trotting. Booking through our flight service means that when possible you will be flying with other Bold Earth travelers and ensures that Bold Earth is informed of all schedule changes and problems. Bold Earth works in partnership with STA Travel, a global travel specialist with 30 years of experience advising young people on adventures abroad. STA helps over six million passengers each year from over over 400 branches worldwide.
