A gap year is not a one-kind-fits-all experience. That's why Rustic Pathways offers 3-month gap semesters and 1-month block programs ranging from group adventures to language study through homestay experiences. You can choose where you want to travel and what you want to get out of it! Our gap year programs inspire growth, encourage openness, and help you develop global perspectives before taking the next step, wherever your path may lead.
