On the build up to 2018, we've been busy putting together a whole range of exciting new trips, just for you! So, by way of celebrating the brand-spanking new year, we thought we'd unveil our top new trips here. Happy new travel year!
Looking at starting over with a new home, new job, new country?! Well, now's as good a time as any, and with our awesome new Canada Paid Work programme, you'll get all the support and advice you'll need to make your (up to) two-year adventure the best it can be. We'll get you started with a place to stay, a team of job experts to get you into paid work, and introduce you to a whole bunch of new buddies to enjoy the ride with – the rest is up to you!
Do something totally incredible with your gap year travels and volunteer with our wonderful team in Swaziland as a shelter-building legend. Learning traditional African construction methods and sourcing materials locally, you'll build shelters and make repairs to community structures that will give the local people and children a chance of a brighter future. You'll even have the opportunity to spend some time getting to know the children and take part in lessons if you like. Life affirming, and eye-opening, this is an experience not to be missed.
If you've got a month or more spare and want to see as much of Asia as possible, then this is the trip for you. Travel through Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, and Cambodia and discover some of the most spectacular scenery, colourful culture, and humbling history in Southeast Asia. From heaving city streets to dense jungles, soothing rivers, and blissful beaches, there's something for everyone to get on board with on this trip – you'll have to take a look at the itinerary yourself to believe the number of amazing experiences.
If you're not really into fun or adventure, then look away now, because our Thailand Tuk Tuk Experience is literally all of the fun and all of the adventure. Seriously. Think maybe you'd like to learn to drive a tuk tuk and go on a hilarious trip through the mountains in tuk tuk convoy with some pretty awesome people? Join the club. Set to be one of our most popular trips this year, not only will you cover some serious ground in your very own tuk tuk through some of Thailand's most beautiful rural scenery, you'll stay in some pretty awesome accommodation, hike through Doi Inthanon National Park, and get to hang out with some friendly elephants on the way.
Start your gap year in the best way possible with an 8 or 13-day discovery tour of beautiful Bali before heading over to Australia for up to a year. We've combined two of our most popular trips to give you one epic adventure all wrapped up in one convenient package. You'll get to bum around Bali's most awesome destinations, from paradise beaches, to forest havens, visiting temples, volcanoes, and coffee plantations before island-hopping around the Gili isles and Lombok. Then you'll head over to awesome Australia to spend up to 12 months living and working down under as you travel around the country – bonzer!
Sticking with the whole work and travel thing, if you are planning a year as a resident Aussie, have you thought about the actual travel side of your adventure? Doing our paid work and travel pass programmes together seemed like such a no-brainer, we decided to combine the two to make it even easier for you to plan the best gap year ever. So, not only will you have a year's full support and guidance with a 9-day introduction to the country and some fun activities to try out, but you'll have your East Coast transport sorted for when you want to cover some serious mileage – a whopping 1,500 miles all in.
