For people interested in our planet and connections to the humans living on it.

Cross Cultural Journeys and Cross Cultural Journeys Foundation - a partnership for a more sustainable way of traveling
Whether you book yourself on one of our open enrollment trips, or book a private journey for your party of 5 or more, Cross Cultural Journeys allocates a percentage (depending on trip cost and size of group) to our sister nonprofit, the Cross Cultural Journeys Foundation.
All of the global projects CCJF sponsors either have a social justice component - typically focusing on youth education - and/or focus on sustainability efforts that help mitigate climate change and its impacts on the planet and its people. Common for all such projects is that they are started and run by local people who live there. They know their needs and we support them in achieving their goals.
12-Steps in 12 Days Along the
Camino de Santiago, Spain
June 23 - July 5, 2024
This journey was especially designed for those who wish to experience the magic and wonder of the Way of St. James while traveling in a supportive, sober community. By nature, walking the Camino lends itself to spiritual growth and self-reflection. The aim of this trip is to amplify and integrate that experience with the aid of an expert Spanish guide, a Yoga of 12-Step Recovery trip facilitator, like-minded companions, and stays in monasteries and albergues that have hosted thousands of pilgrims on their way to Santiago de Compostela. Daily there will be opportunities to practice yoga, walk a portion of the Camino, visit medieval architecture, immerse in nature, contemplate art, attend a 12-step meeting and, of course, enjoy authentic Spanish cuisine. The trip is open to anyone who would consider this journey a path to spiritual growth.
