Travel with us

COVID-19 Update: Please read our FAQs section for our COVID-19 guidelines and general travel information.

Vision Trip

Beginner / Tour

4North’s most popular travel package, a Vision Trip is designed for first time volunteers or group leaders. This experience will give you a full preview of what we offer. As you tour the communities, meet the people, and discuss the projects, we can help discover your role for the next 4North journey.

Off the Grid

Intermediate / Mixed

Work hard, play hard! Off The Grid is an intermediate mix of servicing the people and total relaxation. There is no customization or planning on your end, you simply go with the flow. All programs and projects are locked in and aligned with our four focus areas: security, sustainability, education, and empowerment.

Beyond the Blue

Advanced / Group Travel

Beyond the Blue is an eye-opening group effort, although not a journey for everyone. No electricity, running water and WiFi is a common occurrence in the villages. Experience the living conditions and a behind-the-scenes look at what makes the humble and caring people of the Dominican Republic so special.

What type of projects can I help with?

Feeding the community

We have walked the food to doorsteps, set up food stations within the community and even taken a sustainable approach by planting fruit trees at the schools. It doesn’t matter the method, 4North will work hard on making sure meals are delivered.

Eye exams

Seeing for the first time can give someone that sense of security they’ve never felt before. 4North’s non medical eye exams has serviced thousands of people in 8 different countries. Seeing is truly believing.
