Meet The Team

Adventure Abroad is a woman owned travel company created in 2018 by Jess Culotta, an avid world traveler. Our mission is to create once in a lifetime adventures taking our guests off the beaten path to connect with themselves and the country they've traveled to.

Adventure Abroad trips are designed for highly active individuals that enjoy the balance of adventure, relaxation and happy hours! All of our trips are designed to hit all three of those boxes. At Adventure Abroad we know that there are factors that prevent people from traveling so we work hard to make our trips more easily accessible to the general public. We do this by setting prices that won't break the bank account, picking travel dates that minimize missed work days, and putting together a community of like minded individuals so you are never without a travel buddy! Ready to go on an Adventure Abroad? Check out our upcoming trips!
