2024 Grand Canyon and Northern Arizona Adventure

November 5 - November 10


Discover the Ultimate Adventure Experience for Neurodiverse Individuals!

At Divergent Adventures, we didn’t just invent travel adventures for students, adults, and families affected by neurodiversity – we perfected them! As the first and one of the only companies worldwide to create and operate adventure travel trips designed specifically for adult neurodiverse individuals, we’re breaking barriers and opening up a world of possibilities.

Autism Adventures Abroad, owned and operated by an autistic adult, is leading the charge to encourage young autistic adults to live and travel independently. Founder Alex Stratikis shares his personal journey, insights, hints, tips, and practical advice, offering a unique perspective from the spectrum.

Join us on an epic adventure to Arizona and The Grand Canyon, specially designed for autistic adult travelers. Our program focuses on support, mentoring, confidence-building, and self-reliance. We teach, you learn. We organize, you participate. We tell bad jokes, you laugh anyway. We provide the fun adventure, you explore!

Experience the thrill of adventure travel like never before. “Come Adventure With Us!”

Red Rock Country, Walnut Canyon, Route 66 & Arizona High Country

Adult and University Students’ Adventure

On this 6-Day/5-Night adventure, Mesa, AZ is the starting point. We’ll journey through the Sonoran Desert on the Beeline to Northern Arizona and the Grand Canyon. Winding our way back to “The Valley,” we’ll hit some famous and not-so-famous sites and experience Arizona in a way that few visitors do. Walk, hike, explore, sightsee, eat, and share life skills-building experiences with like-minded neurodiverse adults. Alex Knows The Way!

Brace yourself for an expedition to three natural wonders boasting jaw-dropping geological marvels and ancient historical treasures. From the rugged red rocks of Sedona to conquering the legendary South Kaibab Trail in the Grand Canyon, and exploring the enigmatic ruins of Wupatki, every step promises thrills and discovery.

3. Immerse yourself in a sensory feast as you traverse vast landscapes, listen to the symphony of rushing waters, bask in the warmth of the desert sun, and marvel at the kaleidoscope of colors and shapes around you.

4. Amidst the hustle and bustle of college and adult life, find solace in the serenity of quiet corners for moments of introspection and rejuvenation. It’s the perfect opportunity to recharge and realign.
