Pack for your journey like a pro with these tips!

Plan Ahead- Consider the length of your trip, the weather, and the types of activities you will be doing. Our packing lists below are helpful guides for each of our destinations!

Pack Light- Having a lighter and smaller bag makes all of your travels a breeze! We strongly recommend you choose a carry on size bag, especially for trips where you will be riding trains and moving destinations often. You will be able to do laundry so no matter how long you are traveling for you really only need to pack for a week!

Day bag- Make sure you have a day bag (A small backpack works great!) to fit any of your daily essentials like sunscreen, water, camera, phone, wallet, etc.

Appropriate clothing- Make sure you pack clothes that are culturally appropriate! Many of our destinations are more modest and require clothing with more coverage. See specific destinations for more details.
