Special Journeys for Special People.
Together We Can See the World!
Special Journeys, LLC is a company dedicated to providing individuals with disabilities the opportunity to travel.
Special Journeys is built upon four pillars: respect, honor, dignity and love. These are characteristics we feel are essential when working with people with disabilities. We strive to have Travel Companions on the trips who exemplify these virtues and to plan vacations that are designed with the traveler in mind.
We, as travelers, are seekers and adventurers who believe the world is a remarkable place. We believe that a disability should not keep us from seeing the world. We believe in a desire to live our lives to the fullest and pursue opportunities that will enrich our lives.
