Voyages

Each year we organize three Global Voyages and two shorter Asian regional voyages. Over 1,000 participants visit as many as 20 different countries on our three-month Global Voyages. Both onboard and in-port, our programmes use travel and education to explore the main aspects of Peace Boat’s activities – peace, human rights, and sustainability.
