Apart from a five-year stint as a secondary school teacher, co-founder Phil Gasson has worked in the outdoors all his life, first as a canoeing instructor in South London, then as a River Leader in France. In 2004 he left England to work in France full time, setting up Adventure Ardeche, a company that took thousands upon thousands of groups canoeing, climbing and abseiling through France’s most beautiful region.
Phil firmly believes that adventure should be open to all, so his aim with Schooltrips4u was to bring affordability to groups without compromising on safety or quality. The most obvious step was to head east, to the picture-perfect slopes of Poland and the Czech Republic.
