Gap Years

School's over? Live your gap year adventure in the wild


Gap Years

You have finished school or university and are now between two stages of education? You would like to discover foreign countries, get to know people from all over the world and gain unforgettable experiences? Then a gap year might be what you are looking for!

A gap year is the period between two life stages of a young person and offers the opportunity to take a break and try something new before life starts to get serious. It helps you to become aware of your own wishes and goals, to develop intercultural skills and language skills, to establish contacts and to enrich your CV with valuable experiences.

With Natucate you will experience a year abroad that is all about nature and species conservation, the acquisition of knowledge and the exploration of unique landscapes. Experience your adventure abroad as part of one of our gap year tours – or reach out to us to put together your own individual time-out based on the manifold Natucate portfolio of volunteer projects, nature courses as well as adventure trips. We provide comprehensive advice on design options, financing and planning and always assist you during your time abroad.
