World-class Expedition Leaders

Außerhalb unserer Zentrale in London, England ist die Mehrheit unserer Expeditionsleiter auf der ganzen Welt und in unseren Gap Year Destinationen unterwegs und erlangen viel Wissen über das Gastland und seine Leute. Somit spielen unsere Expeditionsleiter auch in der Vorbereitung der Programme eine wichtige Rolle. Unsere Expeditionsleiter werden sorgfältig ausgewählt und durchlaufen ein rigoroses Sicherheits-, und Gruppenmanagement Training. Das macht sie zu einigen der besten Outdoor Experten für unsere Gap Year und Trekking Programme.

Erika

Erika

Advisor - USA
erikaliedtke@gapforce.org

Erika is a native Chicagoan that can’t get enough of travelling the globe. Immediately after graduating from the University of Chicago with a Degree in Kinesiology, Erika left the comforts of her home and a well-beaten path to travel and work around the world. Today she feels lucky having the opportunity to guide others out of their own comfort zones and into a gap year.

William

Advisor - UK
william@gapforce.org

William gave up any hope of a normal life after catching the travel bug at a young age. A past graduate of Gapforce’s Expedition Leader Training course, he has managed adventure travel programs in South America and Asia. Recently Gapforce succeeded in capturing this runaway Englishman and returned him to his homeland, where he gets to share his love for travel as an advisor. He has so many items on his list that he needs a bigger bucket.

Mareen

Mareen

Advisor - Europe
mareen@gapforce.org

Mareen decided travelling had to become a big part of her life after travelling for the first time at the age of 14 - joining an organized bus trip and heading to Nice. 14 years later, Mareen found herself falling in love with the other side of the world, whilst spending time in New Zealand. The top places on her bucket list include South America, Canada and the Northern Polar Lights!

Giulia

Giulia

Operations and Marketing Coordinator
operations@gapforce.org

Italian passport holder and UK resident, passions include but are not limited to: travelling - well duh - reading sci-fi novels, watching basketball games hoping LeBron will dunk on someone's head, and going to stand up comedy sets anywhere around the world because I genuinely love to laugh and could spend all my money on it.

Dr Raj

Dr Raj

Medical and Safety
info@gapforce.org

Raj is one of a select few individuals that has successfully climbed, unguided, the highest mountain on every continent in the world. It is because of this that Raj is our consultant doctor, allowing us to provide the highest level of safety and medical support. Raj has operated in some of the most inhospitable places imaginable from mountain, desert, polar and jungle environments, right through to warzones.
