What types of Adventure Travel Programs do you have?

Our adventure travel programs can come in the form of road trips, trekking, adventure weeks, diving and additional add-ons.

Some of these programs are used as an add-on to a volunteer trip, for example our adventure weeks are best to do after your volunteer program, as a way to have some fun and relax at the end of your trip.

Some programs like our road trips and trekking, combine volunteering with adventure travel, so you get the best of both worlds!


Who Are Our Adventure Travel Trips For?

Anyone who loves adventure! Most people are aged 18-25 but we get a lot of bookings for older volunteers too! Our road trips and trekking programs are best designed for those who love being active, and who want to travel and explore, as well as volunteer.

These are fantastic if you don't want the hassle of organising everything from food, accommodation, transport, itinerary, etc. You will have a guide with you and everything is included, plus, this is a great option for solo travellers who want to meet other people. 


Trek and Volunteer!

We have two AMAZING programs in Nepal, which take you on two of the best treks in the world; Everest Base Camp and Annapurna Base Camp

Everest Base camp is a little harder due mostly to the altitude and you will need a decent amount of fitness for this. The Annapurna trek is at a lower altitude, and slightly more gentle, but again, a good level of fitness is required.

These can be challenging treks, but you will be rewarded with some of the best mountain views in the world.

Not only that, they also include a week orientation in Kathmandu, and a week (or more) volunteering at the end, so you can help to give back as well as travel - win win!

Nepal Adventure Week
We started early on the Adventure week. We drove to Dhading for two days of rafting! That was so much fun! We had our coordinator Mr Prakash with us and he took care of everything. After a day of rafting, we slept near to the river and made a campfire.
