Trek Epic offers a transformational opportunity to emerging young adults seeking to expand their understanding of their unique gifts and how they might offer them to the world. Trek Epic has designed 10 day international walking treks and a Gap Year option as experiences for guided personal reflection and small group work.
Participants begin with a 10-day launch trek on the Pembrokeshire Coast of Wales, in the United Kingdom, as part of a cohort group (5-8 participants), followed by a month at our base in St. David's, Wales, focused on post trek themes like career assessment, personal development, leadership, and outdoor adventure.
The 1st of November, the group transitions to walk the "Northern Camino," from Bilboa, in the Basque region of Spain, and finishing in Santiago de Compostela. Participants interact throughout their gap time with peer mentors who can relate to their experience, and receive coaching and guidance each step of the way with our professionals.
