About Us

Welcome to Gapforce!

We are an experienced tour operator specialising in student and youth travel programs to some of the world’s most incredible locations. Through our range of school group trips, gap year programs, training courses and internships, we aim to provide our customers with a unique collection of experiences designed for different stages of life.

We are passionate about travel and the positive impact it has on young people’s outlook and future prospects. Our mission is to help people become global citizens through authentic, socially and environmentally responsible travel experiences which aid self-discovery and personal development.

As a small team, we are committed to providing a highly personalised service from your initial contact right through to your chosen adventure. We achieve this through our dedicated team of program leaders and support staff, all of whom are passionate travellers united by a common purpose to help young people explore the world.

In addition, we are committed to exert a positive impact on the regions, countries and communities which we visit. For us it is paramount that the local organisations and communities benefit from our cooperation by working with trusted local businesses and project partners who align with our sustainability objectives.

Safety is also a priority on our programs, and whilst we cannot remove risk from overseas travel altogether, we aim to reduce your level of risk compared to independent travel in the same location by following a clear set of processes and management systems.

We hope to welcome you on board one of our adventures soon, and if you have any questions at all please get in touch with one of the team, we’d love to hear from you.
