Seattle Community Tours & Pacific Northwest Adventures
Global Family Travels' Seattle Community Day Tours and Pacific Northwest Regenerative Adventures unite our Learn, Serve & Immerse travel pillars to offer impactful, community-focused outings to learn about Seattle and the surrounding region’s diverse communities, natural surroundings and history in fun and engaging ways. These adventures are offered in partnership with non-profits in Greater Seattle that address local social and environmental issues, and support local communities and businesses.
These community adventures can also be offered as Team Building Experiences or educational outings for schools.
At Global Family Travels, we believe the most powerful way to learn is through hands-on community-based travel experiences. We let the destination and its people be your teachers, and supplement experiences with reading lists, informal discussions, and a pre-trip orientation to better equip participants with the practical information needed to understand the culture, history, and community challenges of our host destination.
The community-based experiences in and around Seattle provide participants with the opportunity to learn about the history of the area as well as some of our social and environmental challenges from our non-profit partners and guides. We have included information in this booking page about all of our active Seattle Community tours for you to customize a week long stay with us.
Our enriching tours offer travelers and our host community the opportunity to work together on local projects aimed at improving the lives of people in the communities we visit. As we strengthen our connection to the world around us and begin to see ourselves in others, we can’t help but feel a deeper sense of responsibility for the impact of our actions. This lends itself to the goal at the heart of our company – for us all to become better global citizens. We have developed some unique experiences in the Seattle area to give participants the opportunity to do some Service Learning from our non-profit partners, and each of our tours includes a small donation to support the organizations we work with..
For example, on the Olympic Peninsula, we have partnered with two non-profit organizations, the North Olympic Salmon Coalition (NOSC) and the Lower Elwha Klallam Tribe, to host several weekend immersion trips blending education, service, and recreation. Each 3-day trip includes a half day of service work that focuses on salmon habitat recovery, along with guided outdoor adventures and facilitated discussions with our community partners about the recovery work.
On this adventure, there are plenty of Immersive experiences for you to experience Seattle! By choosing some of the fun options we have offered, you can explore Seattle like a true local! For example, Explore & Color Lake Union’s History by Bike and learn about the the history of Seattle's communities through the lens of Colorful Seattle Explore and Color and like a true Seattleite, you will enjoy recreational activities, such as biking and boating, while supporting the environment and local businesses.
