Canadian Expeditions

Before going global, explore local.

Why Join our Experience Canada Expeditions?

Combining exploration and unique learning experiences led by our global issues educators with a cohort of recent high school graduates, Insight's ‘Experience Canada’ expeditions deliver life-changing opportunities for young adults.


Designed for young adults looking to explore, our Experience Canada programs, combine destinations across the country with unique learning opportunities for like-minded travellers.


Over the course of each month-long journey, students will explore their interests and develop career-relevant skills to help them determine what they are passionate about before they start their post secondary careers.


Experience Canada takes students outside their home communities and comfort-zones. Our experienced facilitators will guide students as they create meaningful connections with the land we are visiting and their peers.

Rudi was a student on Insight's first high school program to East Africa in 2015. She is excited to help connect students and recent graduates with life changing experiences like the one she had.

SAFETY IS OUR #1 Priority

All travel carries inherent risks. At Insight our priority is to create a unique travel program for students that balances risk with positive life changing experiences. From beginning to end, our Experience Canada Expeditions are led by highly qualified facilitators and guides. Our team is made up of camp counsellors, teachers, and highly trained wilderness guides. All of our programs undergo a thorough and comprehensive risk assessment before every departure. All participants will need to adhere to an easy to follow code of conduct.

One of our Canadian Advisors is happy to chat to you (and your parents) about the program structure, activities and how you can prepare to stay safe while having the experience of a lifetime!


Getting to travel with your friends is awesome, but what made this trip special was it also challenged us to think differently and work together. The friends I made on this trip will definitely be friends for life!"


Jayson, Ecuador 2018

"I traveled with Insight to Uganda and Rwanda. Learning about climate change and sustainability in the Global South inspired me to study environmental management in university. This trip expanded my world view, and I will never forget it."


"I met so many incredible people on this trip. Our Insight Guide was awesome and made sure everyone felt super included and comfortable."
