Short Haul Expeditions
Want to experience a life-changing expedition...
But can’t commit your time to a long expedition?
We love traveling and exploring the rich diversity of the countries we run expeditions to, and we’d love to provide this opportunity to everyone. We also understand that not everyone can give up a chunk of their time for a long school expedition overseas. So, we came up with a solution...
We looked at some of our most amazing expedition destinations and selected five that are ripe for shorter expeditions. You can select your choice from Gozo, Egypt, Tanzania, Greece or Morocco... each offering their own range of beauty, diversity and culture...
All within a 7 – 10 day time frame!
Morocco – Choose either the short ascent of Mount Toubkal or white water rafting on the Ahansel River that travels through the heart of the Atlas Mountains. Then explore the colourful and bustling city of Marrakech trying out your bartering skills in the souks.
Egypt – Several options are available in this wondrous country from diving in the crystal clear Red Sea with an abundance of colour from the corals and underwater life, camel trekking in the Sahara Desert, exploring the pyramids and temples to a shirt trek in the Sinai.
Gozo – We use PADI (Professional Association of Diving Instructors) accredited instructors within our team and run courses from novice to dive master. After diving there will still be time to soak up the sun in a relaxed Mediterranean atmosphere.
Tanzania – The legendary Mount Kilimanjaro is visible from miles around and sets many records – the worlds highest free standing mountain, highest volcano, shortest distance on the planet from a tropical region (savannah) to a polar region (the icecap) and the highest point in Africa. It is a popular goal and we give you the best chance of reaching the summit. (5,896m)
Greece – Camping on the beach, working with the local turtle program protecting this special species, this is a great trip. Also add in some white water rafting and a tour of the ancient city of Athens and this is a great trip for the younger members of your school and a brilliant introduction to long haul expeditions in the future.
