What are our Covid-19 protocols?

We encourage 9 easy ways to stay safe and have fun during a Covid-19 trip.

Transformative Travel uses the lens of H.E.A.R.T and a potent 4-part process, intensional pre, during and post-trip reflection that can bring more meaning to your journey.

Our journeys venture outdoors while embarking on national and international adventures. Some of the activities included in our small-group travel during Covid-19 come in the form of hiking, fly fishing, float-trips, bird-watching, wildlife adventures retreats and workshops. 

How do we bring H.E.A.R.T to your outdoor experience?
