Edinburgh Microgap (Mini Gap Year) Ideas
Ever thought of taking a microgap? Perhaps you’ve been toying with the idea of taking a gap year, but can’t quite manage it. Well, a microgap is like a shorter gap year, anything from a few days to a few months. A chance to travel and experience new things.
You don’t even have to take time off work! You could have a weekend in Edinburgh, one in London, another in York, and work in between. If this is something you’re considering, read on! We’ve put together some mini gap year ideas for trips to Edinburgh. Our beautiful city is packed full of amazing activities and experiences. It’s the perfect place for a microgapping adventure!
Set out on a journey of discovery, as you trek and hike around this spectacular city. It’s a great way to connect with nature, get out in the fresh air and see the city in a new light.
Take a short cookery course here in Edinburgh and you’ll be a master chef in no time!
If you’re looking for a unique experience, spend some time at Edinburgh’s summer festivals.
During the month of August, our city hosts the International Festival and Festival Fringe, along with several other arts events and performances. Take a few days, or the whole month, to see as many shows as you can and soak up the amazing atmosphere.
Give Something Back
Finally, if you’d like to use your Edinburgh short break to do something for others, there are plenty ways to volunteer in Edinburgh. From helping out at charity shops and fundraising events, to providing care and support for children and adults in need.
