Every one of our courses is tailored to meet the group's individual needs and values, with a clear set of outcomes.

We offer experiential wilderness programs year round, taking place in different locations around Austria and southern Germany.

What teachers and principals say about their OUTWARD BOUND experience

OUTWARD BOUND trips challenge our students both mentally and physically in a way that they can’t experience at school. The reflective component of the courses makes them an excellent Pre-IB Diploma experience.

Colin Campbell, Senior School Deputy Principal, International School of Düsseldorf

Our collaboration is based on shared values and a common educational goal. By strengthening coping skills, promoting resilience and positive risk taking, and focusing on teamwork and leadership training, OUTWARD BOUND further extends and enriches the overall educational experience that young people gain from school. For this reason, we use OUTWARD BOUND as part of our wider educational curriculum.

Our Course formats: Explorer, Challenge and Passage

We aim to find the course that fits your needs the most.

After intense consultation the main focus, program modules and the length of the seminars are individually coordinated according to our customers' objectives in order to achieve the greatest possible and sustainable learning success.


This is our brief introductory course. It is suitable for all classes, and offers the participants and accompanying educators an initial impression of our adventure-based education.


This course is recommended for classes which have the time – after an initial period of adjustment – to go deeper into the next challenging phase of adventure-based education. Individual development and a collaborative team environment are the ultimate goals. The program is individually tailored to each class. With a two- to three-day expedition in the alpine area, the group can overnight in a bivouac/igloo, or in a self-catering cabin.


Those classes lucky enough to have more than one week to take part in one of OUTWARD BOUND‘s extended courses have the chance not only to go on stunning mountain hikes, but also to experience overnighting in the simple beauty of the wild outdoors. Through the extended time frame, group processes develop into a more intent positive team experience, creating truly unique and unforgettable moments.
