Active Connections "Horizon" programme is Irelands first expeditionary based programme dedicated specifically to personal development.

Horizon helps people of all ages face challenges that build character, teach leadership skills, and inspire. Expedition member will be given the opportunity to see places and experience things that the majority of the population miss out on.

Horizon was developed for motivated, determined people who are seeking a physically and mentally demanding skill-building experience in the wilderness.

Mayo’ an 11,000 hectares site of pristine Irish wilderness.   Active Connections staff team have unconditional positive regard for the young people we work with. Our staff team is experienced outdoor professionals with the technical skills to guide people safely in any outdoor setting, but more importantly, are the soft skills our team use which help to translate experiences into real life learning. The expedition member will get the chance to mountaineer, rock climb, canoe and experience a host of other activities.
