Rugby Tours


Rugby is the most popular boys’ sport for overseas touring; this is mainly because of the popularity of the sport in UK schools and the timing of the rugby season, which lends itself very nicely to touring during the summer holidays.

At the heart of a school rugby tour is a group of dedicated students, heading off on the trip of a lifetime, sharing these experiences with those they have taken to the field with for 5 or 6 years. Selection for these tours is often seen as a reward for commitment to the school combined with the usual sporting development achieved on such tours.

Rugby tours have long since been popular within the British school system and follow in the tradition of some of the Lions tours from the pre- professional era of the sport. The spirit of the game is very much alive worldwide and therefore, if you are touring with a rugby team, you really can take your pick from some of the world’s best destinations to visit.



It has to be said that this was probably the best tour we have done from both an organisational point of view and the activities we did. We would like to use you again!

Head of Rugby – Newcastle-under-Lyme School Rugby tour to Argentina
Our Rugby and Hockey tour to South America was fantastic, it was such an amazing destination. The people we met in Chile and Argentina were so welcoming and friendly, and the sport was of a high standard. Our visit to the Iguazu falls capped off an amazing tour, it was a truly spectacular experience that will live long in the memory.
