Experience wondrous sights, animal sanctuaries and beaches whilst getting to know the local communities.
Taking part in an educational tour in Latin America is the perfect opportunity to explore the continent’s stunning sights, animal sanctuaries and beaches. Meet giant tortoises on a hike across the Galapagos, learn how to pan for gold in Quito, Ecuador, or develop jungle survival skills in Belize.
There are also plenty of opportunities to make a difference whilst getting to know the local community, volunteering with one of our partner projects in the continent. Opportunities include helping to preserve the rainforest against loggers and rebuilding local schools in disadvantaged communities.
Every Gapforce School Expedition is unique. Here are some examples of expeditions we’ve put together for previous schools. Take a look to get some inspiration for your trip, and an idea of what is possible with Gapforce.
Nowhere else on earth will you find so much natural diversity in so tiny a place. From the Amazon basin to Andean volcanoes, the balmy pacific coast to the astounding biodiversity of the Galapagos islands, Ecuador is a versatile expedition destination.
Costa Rica’s incredibly varied topography means you can cruise the cloud forest one day, visit an active volcano the next, and finish relaxing on a hot sandy beach. Choice and variety are the name of the game here.
Peru will astound you with its diversity – from glaciated Andean peaks to coastal deserts, to the steamy rainforests of the Amazon basin and the incredible ruins of Machu Picchu!
With one foot planted in the Central American jungles and the other dipped in the Caribbean Sea, remote Belize combines the breath-taking best of both worlds.
Ecuador was absolutely amazing, I can't tell you how much it meant to us all.
