Adulting is hard, there’s this thing called work that you have to go to every day, five days straight, for hours at a time – what’s up with that?

If you’re a busy grown-up person looking for adventure, but can’t take too much time off that work thing, the folks at Exodus Travels have launched a series of adventure-filled mini-breaks for young professionals in their 30s and 40s. Exodus Edits is designed for people who want to maximize their precious annual leave with itineraries that have all the exploration and experience of a gap-year minus the actual year off. 

Edits' itineraries consist of enriching experiences that range in price and activity level, from a leisurely Costa Rica retreat to a challenging climb of North Africa’s highest peak. While trips are packed with activities, Edits' commitment to sustainable travel means there's less burnout for travellers and the places they visit.

Itineraries are designed to respect and protect the people, animals and biodiversity of the destinations visited. Money from each trip booked is invested into communities by employing local tour leaders, going to locally-owned hotels and restaurants, reducing waste and single-use plastic, and creating projects for community empowerment. The idea is less full moon party debauchery and more of the kind of fun you'll want coworkers to see.
