Justifi Vistas

Justifi Vistas is a unique travel program that enables you to escape your home-bound workplace / remote learning environment in lieu of some of the world’s most beautiful and historical destinations.  Unlike other Justifi Trips, Vistas doesn’t have a fully scheduled travel itinerary, rather we take care of the logistics in each of the countries which enables you to get a great taste of each destination while remaining focused on work or school remotely.  Of course, we also include a few curated touring experiences, impactful volunteering opportunities and powerful workshops on tikkun olam and personal growth along the way.
