Gap Year Adventure Tours


Adventure tours are a great way to see the best bits of a country if you are on a limited time scale. They are also good because you meet up with a group of like-minded people to share the experience with and may make friends to travel on with.

There are plenty of specialist gap year tour organisers around. They cover every activity and location you can think of from trekking in the desert to shark spotting in Sydney.

Don't just look at the flashy paid holidays and excursions. Research bodies and charities look for 'helpers' that pay a fee to accompany research expeditions and scientific studies in some of the most remote, beautiful and interesting parts of the world. This can not only be a more enriching experience but also a lot cheaper!

You will find below a selection of gap year trips and tours that can be booked in advance as part of your gap year or round the world planning.
