Learn the skills needed for a career in the growing field of adventure tourism. This fast paced education is designed to equip students with knowledge and experience of both the hard (technical) and the soft (interpersonal) aspects of working in the outdoors.

The education is expedition based and time is spent training and learning in the Himalayan mountains and on its rivers. In the mountains we focus on high altitude trek leading and mountaineering, including summiting a peak. While paddling some of the world's best river, we specialise in raft guiding and white water kayaking. 

 

The training is mixed with a hand picked university course to foster a deeper understanding of the guide profession, and students will graduate with international awards that proves highest standard of safety and guiding skills. 

During the education students become part of the team, learning how expeditions are managed, building problem solving skills and confidence. Collaboration is key, promoting inter cultural competency and the outdoor hospitality mindset.

Sustainable practices are integrated throughout and students gain understanding as well as practical tools to act responsibly in the outdoors.

 

The education aims to educate versatile, skilled and internationally qualified leaders who embody the spirit of an outdoor guide. Along with the unique field experience, students graduate with an edge that allow them to find work any where in the world.
