Where can I travel and is there a sense of urgency?

In short, yes there is a sense of urgency.

Word has got out that we were one the few gap year companies sending travellers overseas during the pandemic, therefore we are seeing a huge rise in bookings. We are indeed COVID experts and are excited to help you with your travels, but don't dilly dally - time really is of the essence as places are filling fast.

So, roll call please for the following 'can go places'. These countries have passed the Leap covid-risk assessment. You are good to go.


The Leap heads to Colombia for an epic road trip, starting in the central wild canyons before heading north to the snow-capped peaks of the Andes and down to pristine Caribbean beaches - ending up in the hip, boho town of Cartegana.

Along the way you will trek through deep gorges and the lush jungle whilst contributing to remote communities and learning a spot of Spanish.
