Bucket list experiences before turning 30

If you’re looking to cross some items off your bucket list before you turn 30, we have more than a couple of suggestions! Travel is the perfect way to check off those life-changing experiences.

  • Go sailing

    Whether you’re looking for a daring adventure through the Northwest Passage or island-hopping across Southeast Asia, a sailing tour is the perfect way to feel like an explorer while still maintaining the comforts of home and making new friends. From whales to full-moon parties, you never know what you’ll find!
  • See the Big Five

    The Big Five - the African elephant, the black rhinoceros, the African buffalo, the lion, and the African leopard - are all prized spots amongst safari-goers, and checking all of them off is an incredible accomplishment! Join a safari adventure in one of Africa’s many national parks for your best shot at seeing these amazing animals in the wild.
  • Go on a yoga retreat

    If your day to day life is getting too stressful, why not spend your time off finding your zen on a yoga retreat? These tours combine breathtaking scenery in places like Southeast Asia and Mexico with supportive yoga classes for every ability level and fresh, healthy food. What’s not to love?
  • Polish your photography skills

    From massive icebergs in Antarctica to fields of lavender in France to Peru’s ancient ruins, one of the best parts of travel is being able to take photos and preserve your memories for a lifetime. Sharpen your skills by taking a photography tour, or just let the natural beauty of your destination inspire you!
  • Go off-the-beaten-path

    Travel is all about finding those hidden gems and places you would never have visited if you weren’t in the know, and touring is all about getting visitors in the know! Whether you’re hiking on an abandoned trail in Nepal or finding the best hidden cafe in Paris, you’ll always have a chance to explore your destination for yourself.
  • Take a solo trip

    Solo travel is an amazing way to get to know yourself better while growing as a person, and one of the best - not to mention safest - ways to do it is on a group tour! You’ll have the freedom to travel the way you want, while enjoying the security a group tour affords.

How travelling in your 20's changes your life

Experiencing other cultures
When you travel in your 20s, you’ll likely be exposed to cultures you’ve never experienced before. Not only does this broaden your horizons and help you get along better with all sorts of people (a very useful skill when you’re starting your career!), it also makes you more empathetic, intelligent, and interesting. 

Learning to stay cool under pressure 
Missed flights, lost luggage, food poisoning: a lot of things can go wrong when you travel. Of course, there are plenty of things that can go wrong in your day-to-day life, too, and when you’ve dealt with all the mini-emergencies that can crop up while you’re travelling, dealing with anything becomes much easier! 

Meeting new people
Wouldn’t it be cool to be able to visit any part of the world and know you have a friend waiting there for you? That’s what happens when you travel as a young adult. Travelling, especially on a group tour, lets you create friendships with people from all over the world, and those relationships become incredibly important when you’re travelling and beyond.

Pros of travelling in your 20s

  • You get to meet people from all over the world
  • In your 20s, you usually don’t have to worry about childcare expenses or other additional costs while you’re away
  • Travel boosts your confidence, which helps you make decisions on the road and carries over into your day to day life!

Cons of travelling in your 20s
  • Generally, you aren’t making as much money as you will later in life, so it can take longer to save up for a trip
  • Once you start travelling, you’ll never want to stop!

Tips for young travellers

Festival & events you can't miss


  • What is the average age of passengers travelling on these tours?

    The average age can vary depending on the tour, however, most passengers are between 18-39. The majority of passengers are backpackers and university students who are going on vacation looking for a focus on nightlife and are happy to use budget multi-share hostels as accommodation. Find out more on TourRadar.
  • Do many people travel alone?

    Small group tours are often very popular with people who travel alone or with their family and friends! If you are travelling alone do not worry as it is a great way to meet like-minded people who also love to travel. Discover more on our page about small group tours.
  • I am travelling with friends, can we share a room?

    When staying in hotels, you will be able to share a room with your friends or partner. However if your tour includes stays in hostels, you will generally only be able to share a room with those of the same gender due to the rooms being multi-share. For more information please do not hesitate to contact our team of Travel Experts or read our page about single supplement.
  • Can you meet people before joining the tour?

    Some tour operators provide a Facebook group or a platform where you can meet your fellow travellers. If your tour operator does not provide this service, then you can meet each other over a drink at your welcome meeting on Day 1 of your tour.
  • Do we get any free time on tours to do our own thing?

    The majority of tours have a scheduled itinerary that includes activities, excursions and allocated free time. This allows plenty of time to see the sights as well as time to explore at your own pace. Otherwise, you can book a private tour.
  • Are the tours party focused?

    Some tours are heavily party focused such as Oktoberfest. However, the majority of young adult tours allow you to see the sights by day, and relax or party by night.
  • Are there early morning starts?

    Your days are usually planned out to allow more time at your tour destinations and less time actually travelling. Generally, most tours will depart your destination at around 9:00 am allowing plenty of time for you to have breakfast and hit the road!
