In October 2004 Voitiv International was created. Since then we have led over a dozen small groups to places in the US and abroad. What once began as a small boutique travel service has now become a unique company that specializes in the wonders of group travel - journeying among like-minded individuals . Those who travel with us are male and female, young and old, married and single, with a family or 'alone.' For those who are animal and nature lovers, we have tours especially dedicated to critters and their habitats.
Let's take flight!
The bonding we undergo as a group before we even leave is what makes our tours so enticing. We are preparing and departing together, ready- and hoping- for the unexpected.
What animals teach us about travel and transformation is more
useful than any guidebook. They don't travel alone, nor should we.
Ela Paige Marcom, Owner and Director of Voitiv International , a non-profit organization, was a former PhD student of Transformative Inquiry at The California Institute of Integral Studies. Her research of group travel among animals, as well as among humans, has resulted in a fascinating discovery of the creative and transformative effects of traveling with others. Now as a doctoral student nearing candidacy in International Psychology at the Chicago School of Professional Psychology, she is taking that discovery one step further- applying the theory of creature pilgrimage and travel therapy to cultures worldwide.
Our organization offers an organic way of experiencing the world together. Regardless of whether you intend to take flight or not, this site invites you into conversations about where travel takes us, and sometimes how it is that animals get us there.
