International Award Adventurous Journey

The Adventurous Journey is often seen as the most demanding area of the DoE/ International Award but at the heart of the Adventurous Journey is the opportunity for the young person to engage in activities that require determination, physical effort, perseverance, problem solving and cooperation; participants are rewarded with unique, challenging and memorable experiences.
Being in a challenging environment, participants will experience highs and lows, both throughout the preparation and training, and the actual journeys themselves. However, the rewards at the completion of the qualifying journey are hard to match; elation, a real sense of achievement, self-confidence, trust and belief in oneself and others.

Adventurous Journey with Sail in Asia

Empowering students on their Adventurous Journey Sailing Expedition

Outdoor Education in Asia has developed a range of Adventurous Journeys that are not only competently run with safety in mind, but also empower all participants to explore their potential, move beyond their comfort zone and gain a real sense of success. Set out above are a range of Adventurous Journeys/Expeditions in the Phuket and Krabi environs for you to review.

Our Adventurous Journey options are not exclusively for the International Award as they also be used towards the International Baccalaureate CAS project, and may be adapted by schools not engaged in either to create a bespoke Outdoor Education Expedition or Trip. We are happy to help you to customise our trips to your school's and students' requirements.
