Sometimes the best way to connect to the world is to get on a plane and go someplace new! WorldOregon has established connections around the globe that allow us to offer members access to individuals and experiences that they can't get when traveling alone or on other tours. We are working towards expanding our travel offerings in the coming year.

WorldOregon frequently partners with the World Affairs Council of Philadelphia to offer unique travel tours to fascinating destinations around the world. The World Affairs Council of Philadelphia began its extraordinary offering of educational tours with their landmark trip to the People's Republic of China in 1977, when they were among the first westerners to enter this fascinating country. Since then, the Council has designed frequent trips around the globe, visiting such diverse locations as Vietnam, Egypt, the Netherlands, Morocco, Antarctica, and Cuba, plus locations like the Pacific Northwest and the Antebellum South here in the U.S.

Our trips and partner-travel opportunities offer all the highlights of touring plus access to local experts who give behind-the-scenes perspective, and provide opportunities for travelers to connect authentically with people across the world.
