‘GOING LOCAL’ WHERE IT REALLY COUNTS

As travelers we understand the transformative effect that visiting other countries and other cultures has on us. But at ElderTreks, we believe this works both ways, and that it is our responsibility to look for opportunities where we can give back to the places that give us all so much.

At an age when many young people are not even thinking of starting a family, she and her Ugandan husband Robert had already adopted 6 of these unloved street children to raise as their own. Six soon became seventeen, and the challenges they faced grew as well. Carli’s story stole our hearts the same way the children had stolen hers, and in 2012 ElderTreks helped Carli and Robert construct the main building that would house this large and expanding family.

Turkey’s Cultural Crossroads

East meets west in this legendary country, where for thousands of years cultures and conquerors laid claim to this land, influencing its language, art, architecture and cuisine.
