|Founded in 1979 Search Beyond Adventures provides all-inclusive escorted vacations for travelers with disabilities and special needs, ages 17 and up. Most of our travelers have developmental disabilities, although some participants may also have a physical disability. Many of our tours can accommodate wheelchair users.
We have six program divisions. Our main Search Beyond Adventures tours is the largest and offers tours all over the world. For customers in the Minnesota and western Wisconsin areas we also operate three to four day weekend Potato Tours. Likewise, in New England we offer three day weekend Sweet Pickle Tours throughout the New England region. For travelers needing a high level of assistance (1:1 ratio) we operate five to six day Pumpernickel Places. Check out My Vacation for individualized supervised retreats in the Orlando, FL area.

Tours operate with one staff escort for every one to five participants. Our staff assist with participants' needs so generally a personal care attendant is not needed. Prices include EVERYTHING: all activities, accommodations, meals, transportation, tour staff, and tips.
Our staff are BOTH human service professionals and travel service professionals. A successful tour must synthesis great people skills and disability knowledge AND logistical coordination with travel resources.
