Skip Navigation LinksAbout-us


When I travelled the world, I found many people just following the same guide book, visiting the same places, and usually with the same people! So I created GapFORCE.

With my own staff living in country the GapFORCE family of programs can work with at risk communities on long term aid projects, source unique adventures and run courses that offer new careers.

We specialise in school and university gap programs, filling the gap between your education and experience".

All our programs are basic, potentially hazardous and therefore should not be considered a structured holiday. Due to their remote nature there may be sudden changes of plan but with over twenty year’s experience, we aim to reduce your level of risk compared to independent travel.

To guide us, we are independently inspected to BSI 8848 “Specifications for visits, fieldwork, expeditions and adventurous activities outside the UK.” We are also members of Year Out Group, British Association of Snow Sport Instructors and Expedition Providers Association. We are a Professional Association of Dive Instructors Education Centre and a Duke of Edinburgh Award Centre.
