Every year, girls and Leaders travel abroad with Girlguiding, visiting Europe and further afield, to take part in a variety of different memorable experiences which have ranged from competing in a race across Europe, trekking across the Arctic, going to an International jamboree, visiting a World Centre, doing community work and using specific skills like sailing. These exciting opportunities are an excellent chance to visit a part of the world you would normally have chosen, to encounter different cultures and traditions, to take part in new and exciting activities, and to make friendships and memories that will last a lifetime.
