Mission & Values

We want to empower every young person who joins us to be confident in their authentic selves and in the skills they possess, so that they will not only succeed, but be an inspiration to others.

Why travel with us?

Adventure travel doesn’t mean reckless travel! Ark Explore encourages young people to step out of their comfort zones without endangering their personal safety, which we take very seriously! Every instructor who travels with us is trained in travel safety so that they can handle any situation that may arise. Our staff members follow strict safety rules and procedures that have been developed over many years by our team. We review and inspect every activity before offering it to groups, and we make sure that all campsites follow specific safety regulations. We do all this because personal safety is just as important to us as personal growth!
