His early interests in sporting activities and the outdoors ignited Michael’s desire to travel personally.

With a focus on gaining experience overseas, he lived and studied abroad in Switzerland while completing a second Bachelor of Science Degree in Hospitality Administration in 2006.

What is Avontuur? The word itself is a noun defined as a remarkable or exciting experience, an adventure. But we all define things differently, don’t we? Our Travel Advisors will help you explore your own ideas, priorities, and budget to design your own customized Avontuur or join an exclusive guided journey.
