Getting started is as easy as 1, 2, 3.

This adventure is about you having the time of your life,

so we've kept things simple. Signing up for your YPA trip is easy:

Choose a trip that works for you. Ask yourself: is this the right trip for me? Do I like camping or is that something I absolutely cannot handle?  Do I enjoy group settings and activities, or am I more a lone wolf? Is a shorter trip the right fit for me? Or, do I have the time & budget to go on a longer trip?


We want you to be 100% comfortable in choosing your YPA trip. Asking yourself these few questions will help you make sure we are a good fit for you. Make sure to read through the trips pages and our FAQ. The information has been compiled by travelers like yourself. That’s the YPA spirit. If you have any questions about any of our trips, your specific trip, or YPA, please contact us anytime. We are here to help and there's no such thing as a stupid question!

Complete transparency, no hidden fees. We pride ourselves on having transparent policies when it comes to booking, payments, cancellations and refunds.

Fairness Policy


We want every participant to feel 100% comfortable in joining their YPA trip. Some people love to travel in very small groups, others prefer to be part of a bigger group. (Both are super fun) Until your trip reaches 4 people, you have the ability to opt-out for free (minus $5 credit card processing fee for the initial deposit) or change your trip departure date to join a bigger group.
