    No - a trip worth taking or a worthwhile trip.


    Worthy =deserving attention or respect

    That charity is a worthy cause.
    The bishop is a worthy man.


    Worthwhile = useful, important or beneficial enough to be a suitable reward for the money or time spent or the effort made:

    It is worthwhile for me to spend time on the internet?
    Anything that helps you learn more is worthwhile.
    Putting money into your savings account is a worthwhile thing to do.
