About Deaf Adventures
Deaf Adventures aims to provide Deaf people and sign language users from around the globe with the opportunity to embark on thrill-filled adventures that are fully accessible. No longer are the days of Deaf people joining adventures only to struggle to develop connections with others, become confused at instructions, and miss out on valuable information. Our Deaf-led adventures are fully accessible, and range from weekend trips to full-week holidays, from beginners’ walking to advanced tramping, and from city/historical tours to adrenaline-filled activities. The best adventure of your life awaits you.
