We work one-on-one with teachers to create incredible educational tours that meet their specific needs and budget. All Explorica tours are fully inclusive and expertly designed to immerse participants in the local culture while introducing them to the people, places and experiences that make each destination unique.
Explorica is committed to enriching students through educational travel, and that means helping teachers extend the opportunity to as many students as possible. In addition to offering the guaranteed best prices in educational travel, we also provide scholarships and a variety of resources to ensure that every student is able to join their classmates on the tour of a lifetime.
A culture of innovation
At the time Explorica was founded, organizing a tour was an entirely manual process and there was little competition in the field to drive change—or improvements in quality, service or pricing.
Industry veteran Olle Olsson recognized the opportunity for innovation. He assembled a multidisciplinary team of seasoned educational travel experts, and set out to reimagine the entire educational travel experience from the teacher’s perspective. Explorica was born.
The company launched in 2000 and was an instant game changer. We empowered teachers to control their trip planning process through simple, online tools. We simplified and digitized the enrolment process by introducing the industry’s first online registration, account management and credit card payment systems. We used the savings from these operational efficiencies to provide higher quality hotels and meals for lower prices than comparable operators in the field. And most importantly, we put teachers first, soliciting their input and using their feedback to continually improve the travel experience.
Your trip, your way, planned by an expert:
- You choose budget, destinations, activities, transport & lodging type
