Voluntourism (volunteer travel) is travel that incorporates volunteering for a charitable cause.

Such trips include cleaning up local wildlife areas and providing medical aid in a foreign country.

Travellers who participate in volunteer holidays typically share a desire to ‘do something good’ while also experiencing new places and challenges in locations they might not otherwise visit.
