I am extremely proud and excited to reveal Halcyon Backpacking Company, an outdoor-adventure travel company for young adults who live with various mental health related issues.
The development of this company has been a long time in the making, with today marking the official public launch of operations. In the coming months and years we will be working tirelessly to bring participants an important and valuable life experience. There are a lot of people who dream of travel, but travelling can be an extremely intimidating idea, especially for someone suffering from a mental illness. We want to make travel more accessible and allow everyone to chase their travel dreams.
What Is Halcyon Backpacking Company?
We are a guided tour company who provides outdoor-adventure themed tours around the world for people between the ages of 18 and 35 who suffer from mental illness and mental health related issues.
How Do Tours Work?
Each tour is led by a certified tour guide, who will lead participants through unique and exciting tours that have a bit of everything: sight-seeing through world famous cities, outdoor exploration in breathtaking locations, and memorable, once in a lifetime adventures. Each tour guide is also accompanied by a mental health professional who will hold counselling sessions throughout the tour and strive to improve participant’s overall well-being.
Who Can Participate In A Tour?
Anyone. You don’t need a formal medical diagnosis in order to go on one of our tours. Everyone suffers differently and we all deal with our struggles in our own ways. We want our tours to be available to as many people as possible, so we don’t require you to get a doctors referral or prove your condition. We want to help you, so all we ask is that you are willing to participate in the counselling sessions offered on tour.
When Do Tours Start?
We are aiming to have the first tours depart in 2015. We currently have example tour itineraries on the website which provide an idea of what tours will be like. You can also join our mailing list to be notified as soon as tours become available.
