What is Adventures in Mind? Adventures in Mind is for everyone, young and old, local or distant. Add something special to your travels by joining knowledgeable VIU professors to explore the history and culture of fascinating places.
Adventures in Mind will appeal to life-long learners who are inquisitive, open-minded and looking beyond the usual tourist experience. Under expert guidance, groups of 7-15 encounter the selected destination through tours, lectures and seminar discussions, and with ample free time for independent activity. Participants are encouraged to share their knowledge and understanding with others, so that all benefit in their learning.
Typical Adventures run for three weeks, and emphasise staying in a single place to minimise time lost to travel; university credit may sometimes be an option; a level of physical and mental fitness is highly advisable; curiosity and community spirit are essential!
