With 202 sovereign states in the world, you’ll never be short of choice when choosing where to go on your gap year! But how exactly do you pick Peru or Paraguay, or Australia or Azerbaijan? The answer is simple: take a scroll through the different countries right here on Total Gap Year – as well as the various gap year programmes for each of them – and get the full picture on every destination in the world.

Below you’ll find a map with the most popular gap year destinations, followed by a list of the rest of the places you can also go. What do we recommend though? Well, we think you should head to as many places as possible! A round the world trip can encompass as many far-flung places as you like, so that trip to the USA could also include a jaunt over to Mexico, or the month in India could have a few weeks in Japan thrown in for good measure. Stretch your imagination and open your mind to the whole world of possibilities out there…
