Alumni & Family Travel
Alumni & Family Travel is learning for the joy of it in fascinating places around the world. The majority of our programs are faculty-led, with custom-designed itineraries, and often offer access to local experts not available to individual travelers or commercial tour groups. Programs are consistently rated a good value by participants, with no hidden costs.

Alumni, parents, and friends of St. Olaf currently registered for upcoming adventures
St. Olaf Travel helps alumni, parents, and friends of the College explore other cultures, histories, cuisines, and more. The goal is that in encountering other perspectives, we will deepen our understanding of our own viewpoints. Play the video to learn more.
“You just cannot top this leadership … The professors … get you to places you’d never know to go to yourself.”
WHAT’S ON YOUR BUCKET LIST?
Most of us have a travel bucket list. Let St. Olaf help you make some progress with it, from sailing the Mississippi on a river boat, to making a grand tour of Italy as the young people of the 18th century did after graduating, to hiking and kayaking in Patagonia, and much, much more.
A good book makes a great companion for international travel. From CrimeReads: these eight stories of far-flung adventure are perfect companions for plane…or café. Enjoy one between sips of local wine. Bookmark one with a receipt in handwritten Cyrillic. Or skip the bookmark and finish one overnight…by lamplight in crisp hotel sheets, secure in the knowledge that only more rest and recreation awaits you at the dawn.
