Seeking Adventure?

Is your perfect Gap Year filled with adventure, adrenaline and amazing experiences? Then you’ve come to the right place! Our Gap Year programs all include an option for adventure travel, where you can leave the beaten track and experience adventures you never thought possible.

Bungee jumping over the River Nile, snorkelling off Diani Beach, climbing Mount Kilimanjaro and spotting the big 5 on an African Safari, are just some of the opportunities available when you travel with AV. Read on to find out more…

We operate in nine incredible countries and the opportunities for adventure are endless but in order to keep this blog post short and sweet we will focus on just two today; Thailand and Kenya. Why? Well, because these are our next two departures and because we know you won’t be able to wait to start your adventure of a lifetime once you read what these destinations have in store.
