Where we work

Here are some of the places where we’re currently working. Schools can join us at these sites to experience an Adventurous Journey or Residential Project. Alternatively, through our network of education professionals across three continents we are able to provide expertise at your school. We are always open to new partnerships and locations, so please don’t hesitate to contact us if you are based outside these areas.


We work predominantly in the Akamas Peninsula and the Troodos mountains, both areas of outstanding natural beauty. Working with our local partners, we deliver a number of activities including Adventurous Journey programmes for The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award and Residential Projects including female only STEM courses and educational tours for subjects such as Geography and History. The great climate and good transport links make this is an ideal destination for Adventurous Journeys for schools based in the Middle East.


As a Registered Activity Provider (RAP) for the Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award USA, we deliver Adventurous Journey and Residential Project programmes for Award participants from across the country.


KATAG is being launched through a range of franchise partners, beginning with bases in Cardiff. If you would like more information about this exciting opportunity, please contact us.


Set in amazing Tuscany and working with our local partners The Sansepolcro Youth Foundation, we are delivering Award Adventurous Journeys in this picturesque and historic corner of Europe. With our partners we are also developing opportunities to explore the local culture, history and cuisine through Residential Project weeks.

French Alps

Working with our partner school SEK Les Alpes, we provide alpine adventures for young people via our summer camps, Award Adventurous Journeys and Residential Projects.

The rich landscape and cultural diversity of the region means that we can take young people on an inspiring adventure. Our Residential Projects take advantage of the outdoors, with canyoning, mountain biking and climbing all included. We also spend time in Geneva and Annecy to explore the culture of the region and some trips include a visit to the CERN laboratory.

Gulf / Middle East

We are currently establishing new partnerships in the Gulf to deliver Award Adventurous Journeys in landscapes that haven’t changed in hundreds of years.


We are developing opportunities for Award Residential Projects and summer camps in this part of Spain.

Contact us for more information about these and other opportunities.
