Adventure Gap Year Courses

While any gap year is technically an adventure, on this page we are looking specifically at the types of courses that involve either some form of physical activity, or allow you to gain valuable teaching or coaching qualifications in one or more outdoor adventure activities. Learn to sail on a Royal Yachting Association course in Italy, gain National Governing Body awards on a five week gap year adventure in the Lake District, or simply enjoy the Canadian wilderness on a Mountain Biking Course.

The adventure industry is a perfect match for the profile of your average gap year student. Whether you are taking a gap year before, during or immediately after a university degree, our providers have a range of adventurous courses in countries around the world. Some gap year adventure courses are experience based, such as trekking in the Himalayas, or trying your hand at cattle ranching in the Australian outback. Others are skills or qualifications based, and these are the most popular. Not only can you get to travel to and live in a new part of the world but you will also be training and working towards gaining a recognised qualification that will look great on your CV and can help jumpstart your career in outdoor adventure.
