									 Every expedition offers its share of challenge and adventure
 - this is how students learn new skills and reach their full potential.
 Learning about safety, both their own and that of others, is a crucial life lesson.
 We work hard to keep the balance between maximum challenge
 and minimal risk, so students and teachers can look forward
 to a rewarding, well managed experience.                                                                                                             Destination brief
