A gap year is not a one-kind-fits-all experience. That's why Rustic Pathways offers four unique types of gap semesters, ranging from group adventures to self-directed internships. You can choose where you want to travel and what you want to get out of it! Every semester offers unique advantages, and we’re happy to help you decide which is ideal for you.
- Service and Exploration: for those looking for a group-oriented experience, explore multiple countries within a region and take part in meaningful service projects along the way.
- Spanish Language Immersion: perfect if you want to become fluent in Spanish, live with families in a home stay, and gain essential backpacking skills.
- Rustic Internships: for go-getters who want to gain practical, professional skills working with an organization in our partner countries.
