Gap Year Adrenalin Adventures

Wednesday 24th October 2012

Regardless of whether you want to work in a paid position or volunteer during your gap year there are so many adventure activities that are available to you.

Not for the Faint Hearted!

So you are looking to take a gap year away and you love adventure and the feel of your heart racing pumping your body with adrenalin… you don’t want to take a tame gap year, you want to take a gap year that will live long in the memory and give you the moments of breath-taking fun. You want an adventure gap year.

One such option is to look to see what charity challenges are available. Many charities have challenges in different parts of the country which you can combine and fit into your gap year away. Such challenges include:

    • Climbing Kilimanjaro
    • Trekking up Everest, the volcanoes in Reykjavik, Iceland or even the Sahara
    • Walking the Great Wall of China
    • Mountain biking in Marrakesh, Morocco

Sound like fun?

Don’t forget that there are so many great gap year organisations out there to help you organise your adventure gap year. They can ensure that you can combine treks, tours and expeditions to places all over the work, satisfying even the most demanding adrenalin-junkies enthusiastic appetite.
