Whether you're on a gap year or a career break or just fancy doing something different on your next holiday, adventure travel can be a great way to see something of the world.
This type of trip allows you to combine exhilarating activities with sightseeing and relaxation for an unforgettable getaway lasting for a few weeks, months or even years.
Real Gap Experience provides a host of travel options to suit a range of tastes and budgets, so whatever you want to do, we can help you to put together the perfect adventure.
Adventure travel: What's on offer?
A popular type of adventure travel getaway is one that involves trekking and perhaps an expedition.
With a trekking holiday, you can truly get to know the country you're visiting as you pass through it on foot. You can get up close to the region's scenery, wildlife and local communities, giving you a unique experience you'll remember forever.
Examples of this type of adventure include using a wide-ranging bus pass to explore the highlights of New Zealand, a 64-day tour of the US and an Australian wildlife-themed journey from Adelaide to Perth.
In addition, some of our top 10 gap adventures include immersive experience trips where you take the time to learn the local language or cook the native cuisine as you travel through your destination and meet members of the community for a wonderfully authentic taste of another culture.
If you really want to push the boat out – or if you simply can't settle on just one place to visit – you can also choose from adventure travel options that let you take in several different locations on a round-the-world getaway.
Sample itineraries include a year-long journey through south-east Asia that stops off in India, Vietnam and Thailand, as well as one that heads to Africa, Australia and Thailand in a single tour.
For adventure travel with a sporty theme, there are plenty of options to choose from. You could help underprivileged children get to grips with football and other pursuits as a volunteer, or you could indulge yourself with a getaway that allows you to learn all about ranching, scuba diving, martial arts and much more besides.
If you think you might have difficulty financing your gap year, you could choose a trip that combines fun activities and tours with paid work. This is a wonderful way to both get by money-wise and meet lots of different people – as well as gain some valuable experience for your CV.
