HUMAN OUTREACH PROJECT

One of World Wide Trekking’s founding principles is giving back to the places we travel. Through our sister non-profit, Human Outreach Project, we are making a difference in lives around the globe, and connecting trekkers with voluntourism opportunities in local communities.

Although we don’t have projects in this part of the world, there are always opportunities to get involved and find a meaningful way to engage with the local community. We would love to talk to you about custom voluntourism and humanitarian opportunities that you can incorporate into your WWTrek trip.

TRIP NOTES

Best time of year to visit:

Late spring to early fall (March – October) is the sailing season in the Mediterranean. We prefer spring and fall over summer due to smaller crowds and lighter winds.

Customs, Visas, & Immigration:

U.S. Citizens are not required to obtain a visa for travel in Croatia or Greece. To travel to Turkey you will need an e-Visa, your WWTrek trip specialist will make sure all these details are taken care of before your trip.

You will need a passport valid for more than six months after your trip. Make two copies of your passport. Leave one at home and bring the other with you in case of an emergency. Ensure you provide a color copy of your passport to WWTrek, 90-days prior to your departure date. Always carry two extra passport photos when you travel.

Gratuities:

In many parts of the world, gratuities are given in appreciation for a job well done. Our guides will take care of tipping service personnel along the way so that you don’t have to think about it.

For any additional services outside of our itinerary, plan to tip 10% (transport, restaurants, baggage, lodges, etc). We will provide you a tipping guide once you sign up for a trip.

At the trails end you will have the opportunity to contribute to a group tipping pool that will be presented to your WWTrekking guides and trekking staff as we say our goodbyes.
