Gap Year Vacations

Gap years provide you with the opportunity to take a break from work or education to learn about other countries and cultures. Whatever you choose to do during a year out, it can be a great experience to remember and help you decide on your future.

Options for your gap year trip

Whatever your interests or future plans, you can choose activities to suit you. Frontier gives you the opportunity to have a brilliant time as well as making a different to people in poor and in need communities across the world.

Wildlife conservation allows you to help conserve endangered species, work with recued animals and protect marine environments.

Teaching and community projects give you the chance to work directly with local people whether you are teaching English or sports, providing health care assistance or help with construction projects in the community.

Where to visit on a gap year

One of the best parts of a gap year is being able to explore remote countries that are a world away from what you may be used to.

If you’re looking for something oriental, head to Asia to explore its vibrant culture. Alternatively you could explore the tribal cultures of Africa, the beautiful scenery of Australasia or get a taste of Europe with projects in Greece and Italy.

Or for something nearer to home, head down and travel the Americas venturing across Central and South American countries, perhaps on one of our professionally-led adventure travel tours.

Plan a Frontier gap year

Frontier allows you to visit new places and make a difference to those in need. You can also get the opportunity to gain qualifications that can be added to your resume or help support your university application.

If you’re ready to start planning your gap year then get in touch. Our volunteer advisers can help you find the right country and project for you, or if you already know what you want to do then apply now.
