Filtered: Calling All Adrenaline Junkies

There’s nothing quite like a true adrenaline rush.

At Rustic Pathways, we know  adventure can take you to new heights (sometimes literally!) and become some of the most memorable moments during immersive travel experiences. This summer, Rustic students are skydiving in New Zealand, hiking across Yosemite Valley, zip lining through beautiful Costa Rica, and taking part in dozens of other exciting activities.

Want to join the fun? Grab your helmet, scuba gear, or hiking poles and check out photos from the last couple weeks of Rustic adventures.

Be sure to add  #sorustic to all your program-related Instagram posts! All photos will be considered for our weekly blog post and automatically entered in the #sorustic photo contest. Visit our blog, which features wanderlust-inducing landscapes, Rustic BFFs, photos from Program Leaders, and more!
