Expand Your Family Circle on a "Learn, Serve & Immerse" Adventure!

Innately, women are nurturers, and when they travel together, there is oftentimes a deeper level of caring, connection, and sisterhood that occurs, and lifetime bonds are often made. This level of nurturing plays a key role in regenerative travel, an approach to tourism that puts the destination’s needs at the heart of tourism experiences, and creates opportunities for travelers to be stewards of the place they visit.

Global Family Travels is a women-owned travel company based in Bellevue, WA that values a community-based, regenerative approach to tourism, ensuring the travel experiences we offer uplift and empower local people in each destination we visit. By designing adventures that foster our mission to Learn, Serve & Immerse, we strive to encourage travelers of all ages to become stewards our planet, to help regenerate it and keep it healthy.

Global Family Travels is passionate about creating community-based, family-friendly trips that are truly meaningful, encouraging travelers of all ages to become both stewards of the destination they visit and citizens of the world. Guided by our three travel pillars of Learn, Serve & Immerse, we develop unique adventures in partnership with local communities or non-profit organizations and often times align them with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (global goals). Our Expand-Your-Family Circle travel experiences feature a unique mix of cultural and educational activities, as well as community engagement to help make a positive impact on the lives of people and natural habitats where we visit.
Whether it is a one-day community adventure in the Seattle area, a customized journey or a small group global adventure,  each experience features a unique mix of cultural and educational activities, as well as community engagement to help make a positive impact on the lives of people and natural habitats where we visit.
Since I founded Global Family Travels in 2010, I have been blessed to share my passion for connecting people and cultures worldwide, and have expanded my own family circle, working with amazing community partners and across the globe that have hosted our travelers in many countries. Global Family Travels was inspired by my early career in international development, my cultural anthropology degree, as well as my upbringing, living in six countries and traveling from a young age with my own family. I experienced firsthand the transformational impact travel had on me and my fellow female travel companions, and the women in the communities we visited.

Destinations that Honor our Roots:

Global Family Travels offers adventures in over 20 destinations around the world, including to the Seattle/ Pacific Northwest U.S. region. Global Family Travels roots began in beautiful Ladakh, India in 2010. Since then, we have journeyed with clients to this region on many special trips, supporting wonderful community focused organizations, including the Siddhartha School, a unique school that educates children in the remote villages of this Himalayan region. We invite you to join us there in 2024 in support of the school. See this brochure of 2024 Ladakh tripsand links below to join us:
