Adventure tours and expeditions: a great choice for your gap year

For those planning a gap year, an adventure tour could be just what you're looking for: a chance to get out into the world, experience the best things a country has to offer, and learn a little about yourself.

Frontier specialises in offering gap year expeditions for adventurers of any age. Our adventure tours are ideal for students looking to build on their skills and life experiences before going to university or starting a job, as well as those who are already working but looking to break away from the rat race.

At Frontier, we work hard to ensure that your year out is exactly what you're looking for. Whether you want to just travel or also do volunteer work along the way, we're sure to have the right gap year expedition for you.

What will happen on a gap year adventure tour?

Those who are thinking about going on a gap year adventure tour often wonder what will happen during their year out.

Well, the answer is really up to you: trekking, backpacking, horse riding, scuba diving and sightseeing are all options for your expedition.

At Frontier, our adventure tours give you a chance to see the world, while making friends and learning new skills.

One choice for your gap year adventure tour could be an expedition through the Americas. Explore the dazzling cultures and fantastic scenery while you take part in the various activities on offer.

A gap year expedition in Asia is another option that will give you a wide range of experiences. Discover this continent, its friendly people and delicious food while immersing yourself in the culture.

Our African adventure tours include an expedition to Tanzania where you'll live and work in a rural community, with the chance to explore the sights and sounds of this amazing country.

Gap year adventure tours - and volunteer work

If you're looking for a gap year expedition that enables you to give something back to a community or the natural environment, Frontier specialises in providing ethical adventure tours.

Our ethical expeditions include the opportunity to do volunteer work in the location of your choice, with activities ranging from teaching English or providing healthcare support, to eco travel expeditions and wildlife conservation projects.

Frontier's south east Asia ethical adventure tours will take you through Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam, where you'll experience the sights and sounds of these unique destinations, while taking part in a wildlife conservation project or contributing to a community development project.

Or you could try a Central America ethical trail. Travelling through Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua and Costa Rica, you'll explore everything from Mayan ruins to rainforests, while also participating in a conservation work project or teaching placement.
