A typical day at

Backpacker Trail.

We know from our own experience that planning a backpacking trip is not that easy. Which destination suits me? What is the best way to get from A to B? What costs should I expect?

The internet is full of information, but where do you even start looking? Research is tedious, time-consuming and deters many from realising their dream of a backpacking adventure.

What kind of

service do we offer?

To start with, we don't sell trips ourselves, but we help you find the best market price for your backpacking trip.

We do not offer a standardised package of services that is ready to book, but a framework to enable you to create your individualized experience. This framework includes offers for flights, accommodations and transport at your destination.

For this purpose, we have developed a new web app that will be launched in 2021!

Through the web app, you will be able to create your own personalised itinerary by selecting your interests and activities. Once you have designed the perfect itinerary for you, you will receive an e-mail with the finished plan, and all you have to do is book it all. ;)


Once an itinerary is created, you have the option to also publish it and share it with other backpackers on our platform. If a backpacker scrolls through these routes, he or she has the possibility to contact you and you can start the backpacking adventure together.


If something still isn’t clear, please contact us via Whatsapp or write us a message via the contact form.
