About Us

We are a small company that believe in safe and sustainable travel experiences for young people. 

Our interactive courses explore common travel issues, built upon our own experiences, with an emphasis on how to remain healthy whilst away. 

This starts in the planning stages and we will advise participants how to risk assess and adequately plan their trip.

We feel that all young people should possess basic first aid skills, which is why we also teach CPR within our courses.
