Our Tours for students based on theme as below :-
1. Nature Tours
As we lead students closer to nature, we strive to imbibe in them the timely need for conservation. At Foliage Outdoors, we 'practice what we preach' and eco-tourism is the path on which students will walk with us. All the natural history studied in textbooks will come alive as students explore the different types of forests and the changing flora and fauna across the nation. We believe learning happens as much outside the classroom as inside it, and our team delivers researched knowledge about the ecosystem in an engaging manner.
2. Adventure Tours
Students of today are going to be the leaders of tomorrow and we believe in catching them young! Our Adventure Camps are comprised of a number of team-building activities that lend a hand in building students' personalities. Challenges are presented to them at every stage and each obstacle they conquer individually and as a team, adds to their confidence levels. Students will walk away with not just new friendships but also with essential life skills.
3. Culture and Heritage Tours
At Foliage Outdoors, we firmly believe that tradition and culture cannot be taught. It must be experienced. We take the initiative of introducing students to various cultures spread across the nation, through our Culture and Heritage tours. India is a land blessed with heritage sites. For students, they often remain just names in a history textbook. We wipe off this invisible boundary between the Past and the Present and conjure up an experience where 'history will repeat itself'!
