Adventure is worthwhile in itself
A trip for every boy
Highlands offers an extensive tripping program based on age and skill – and is a keystone of the Highlands experience that every boy will take an age-appropriate trip. These trips foster deep connections between your son and the natural world, build confidence and will challenge him to step outside of his comfort zone.
