What is an Expedition Leader Program?
The Expedition Leader Program & Course takes you on a 12-week trip through 6 countries, while you learn to plan, assess and undertake expeditions to remote areas. On this journey, you will become a confident global traveller, prepared for all circumstances, and you will learn how to safely navigate your way through potential travel dangers. This is the first step on your way to becoming a travel guide.
Who is this program for?
We created this outdoor leader program as an immersive learning experience, for those looking to gain confidence and experience as an international traveller. Whether you are looking to get into the adventure travel industry, or simply become a rounded global traveller yourself, this program provides you with the necessary skills.
Program travel locations
This program takes you on a journey to no less than 6 countries! Explore the Galapagos Islands, volunteer in Ecuador and Laos, check out Machu Picchu, hike through the Vietnamese rice terraces, visit the hill tribes in Thailand and trek into the Himalayas. Now that’s one hell of a trip!
How does it work?
The 3-month Expedition Leader Course is broken into three modules that focus on different key areas to build your repertoire of skills and experience. Each module builds on the one before - as the program progresses so will your skills; your proficiency as a global traveller and your confidence to lead others. The itinerary itself also progresses into more challenging global regions, continuously immersing you in learning experiences and developing key global adventure guiding skills.
