Rustic Pathways is a pioneer in providing superior quality travel and service programs for students and families in some of the world's most welcoming countries. Rustic Pathways demands professionalism and integrity across all of its operations, insists on quality in all aspects of its programs and places the safety of its students above all other considerations. We enrich the lives of our students and our staff, benefit the parts of the world we serve and build cultural bridges that lead to greater global understanding and cooperation.
While Rustic Pathways will be a new name to most, we have actually been around for 28 years. Rustic Pathways was founded in Australia in 1983 and our business started by operating four-wheel-drive tours through Australia for international students. Our centres of operations have since spread to Fiji, Thailand and the USA and over the last two decades Rustic Pathways has emerged as one of the world's leading high school travel organisations. Our Australian division, Rustic Pathways Travel Pty Ltd, is proud to now be offering our life-changing opportunities to students in Australia and New Zealand.
Experiential education is an extremely powerful philosophy of teaching. Using the world as our classroom, Rustic Pathways has created enriching and empowering travel programs for students of all ages. Our programs are carefully designed to focus on experiential education, cross-cultural exchange, community service, life skills, adventure and language. The educational outcomes of our programs are as diverse as the opportunities we offer.
Our deep full-time commitment to the regions we serve has made Rustic Pathways the leader in our field. Our programs benefit the students who travel with us and have long-lasting, positive effects for the people and communities we work with. Rustic Pathways teaches and inspires students to make a positive difference in their world and how to become more responsible global citizens.
Every parent hopes their child's life will be punctuated with wonderful experiences. We would love to provide your students with one of those unforgettable, life-changing adventures.
Best wishes from all of us at Rustic Pathways.
