Next Step Travel

Travel with NPCA!

NPCA’s Next Step Travel program provides respectful hyper-local immersion in developing countries:  360-degree “anti-tour” itineraries that combine unparalleled local access, cultural immersion, non-extreme adventure, and opportunities that open pathways for connection with local people.

The chance to get a close-up view with a Peace Corps perspective is a unique feature of Next Step Travel. In-country staff make it a point to seek out local craftspeople, small businesses and cooperatives, many with a Peace Corps connection. Each trip is with a small group and most are all-inclusive, freeing you fully to experience every minute of your trip - and enjoy the company of your travel companions.

Please join us as we explore these upcoming destinations

Update: The Next Step Travel program to Iran scheduled for this coming September has been canceled. We received official word via our tour operator that the Iranian government has officially halted processing of all U.S. visas and all trip planning for U.S. groups until the U.S. government rescinds its ban on Iranians traveling to the U.S.
 
NPCA and our partners on this program, Peace Corps Iran Association, look forward to a day when we may be able to again explore the the rich historical and cultural contexts of - and Peace Corps history in - Iran.
