Top Trips for 17 Year Olds

What do voting, drinking, gambling, getting married and getting a tattoo all have in common? Aside from all being things that sound like a typical night out in Las Vegas (apart from the voting) they are all things that you have to wait until you’re 18 to enjoy (hmmm, again probably not including voting in this).

But if you’re 17 and are looking for adventure then you’ve come to the right place. Here at Real Gap we have loads of trips that are suitable for 17 year olds ranging from looking out for the Big 5 in South Africa to looking after giant pandas in China.

So for your gap year travel plans take a look at the trips below and then get in touch with our team. We’ll help find the right trip for your gap travel plans and can organise all your flights and insurance too.

These trips are just our top 10 most popular for 17 year olds and we have plenty more on offer too. So why wait, get on your gap travels now!

Want to talk? Just request a call back and we'll get in touch.

It aims to care for the elephants and their mahouts who rely entirely on their elephants for their own survival. The project works to slowly and continuously improve the wellbeing of the elephants by educating the tourists who come to visit and take a ride, the elephant keepers (mahouts) and the local community.
