Glacier kayaking and helicopter camping

Summer is a special time in the mountains, especially in Canada’s British Columbia region.

As the temperatures rise, melting snow on top of the glaciers creates rivers, revealing an adventurer’s playground.

The best way to explore these vibrant blue meltwater highways is by inflatable kayak. There are no roads or trails up to the glacier so the only way to get there is by helicopter.

The journey to the glacier is just as awesome as the destination. Soar high above the Coast Mountains, and see deep canyons with raging waterfalls.

Stop off on the lake shore and sleep under the stars on a granite beach.

If you want to explore the untouched beauty of remote Canada away, this trip should be on your radar.

Prepare your kids for the future

In the real world, no one will ask you to drop down and do calculus or recite the dates of the French Revolution. Yet traditional schools remain focused on preparing kids for jobs that no longer exist.

Luckily Prequel is here to fix that.

Through entrepreneurship and world-class mentors, Prequel helps middle and high school students build crucial life skills that traditional education overlooks.

Our new world demands citizens who are self-learners, creative, and resourceful. Problem solvers who can adjust and adapt to constant change. Independent thinkers who are willing to carve their own paths.




The rock forests of Tassili N’Ajjer National Park

Instead of featuring one natural wonder, we decided to show you a place that is packed with geological marvels.

Algeria’s Tassili n'Ajjer National Park is a vast plateau deep in the heart of the Sahara.

Here the towering dunes meet the surreal panorama of geological formations with "rock forests" of eroded sandstone that resemble a strange lunar landscape.

Aside from the natural beauty, there is another type of art to admire in Tasili n’Ajjer. Over 15,000 petroglyphs and paintings record the climatic changes, animal migrations, and the evolution of human life in this corner of the Sahara from 6000 BC to the first centuries of the present era.

Boat life in Raja Ampat

Photo: Back 2 Basics Adventures

Image waking up on a sailboat anchored in a calm bay. You step out on the deck and take in the sunrise.

You’re surrounded by limestone cliffs covered in vegetation.

Through the crystal clear water beneath the boat, you can see schools of fish darting over coral gardens.

Oh, I almost forgot to mention you have the place all to yourself.

It’s not just a fantasy, sailing in Indonesia’s Raja Ampat can be like a dream come true.

The underwater world is just as incredible as above the surface. The abundance of fish is almost overwhelming, where ever you look there is something interesting happening.
