Fostering Village Life

Fostering village life is at the core of these organisations and together we are building an association of like-minded travel organisers.

Village life is under threat throughout the world, as small-scale agricultural activity becomes more difficult to sustain. Each of our Grass Routes associates offer journeys into rural corners of the world which highlight and support village life  and help towards the long-term sustainability of each village. The holidays they offer are wonderful, immersive experiences, and just as with our Village Ways trips, expert local guides bring so much to the holiday experience.

Visit little-known villages in magnificent, beautiful places where traditional ways of life continue to exist. Book directly with the local organisations through the links below and please mention Village Ways when booking.


Grass Routes is our network of like-minded travel companies. In this section we recommend local travel companies who present rewarding holidays at the heart of village communities. All of these organisations share the values and sensitivities of Village Ways and demonstrate a commitment to fostering and celebrating village life. Book directly with the local organisations and please mention Village Ways when booking.
