Immersive Travel: The Art of Slowing Down

Immersive travel means travelling the way locals do every day throughout Europe, by train, tram, ferry and on foot. Immersive travel means taking the time to be present with your journey and fellow travellers.

The art of slow travel is a rewarding and enriching experience allowing you the time to take in the sights, sounds and smells of your new surroundings. This is also an excellent way to build your independence and resilience through learning to navigate Europe’s public transportation network.

These rhythmic journeys by sea and rail are complete sensory experiences, offering a unique perspective of some of Europe’s finest scenery. On your travels, you’ll meet interesting people from all over the world, be enthralled with local culture and build your travel skills along the way.

This may be your first time away from home in a different country or you might have already experienced life away from family and friends. Either way, navigating the public transportation networks of Europe will likely be a departure from your comfort zone, this is a good thing! Of course, you’ll have the full support of your Program Leaders as you learn to navigate your journey.

The travel-skills, friends and insights that you develop on your travels will last a lifetime.
