Our story begins with two students, Dan and Charles, having just summited the world's highest freestanding mountain, Kilimanjaro, in 2008. Two individuals passionate for both adventure and charity, they returned to the UK to start a travel company, hoping to share their incredible experiences with as many young people as they could. Over the past decade, their dream has evolved dramatically, into a leading student travel provider, which has raised over £20 million for charity and sent over 10,000 young people on life-changing experiences all over the world.
