Travel and adventure

Life in the Royal Marines can take you further than you believed possible. Experiencing things you never imagined, in places you never thought you’d visit. Whatever your rank, you’ll get paid to travel the world, making friendships that last a lifetime. 

Travel

From operations in the Arctic, to exercises in the Mojave Desert, travelling the world is all in a day’s work. You’ll even have opportunities to see the sights when you get some downtime. Take a look at the map to see what some of our personnel have been up to.

Skiing

I’ve always had a passion for skiing, whether that’s going away with some mates or just getting some practice on the local dry ski slope. Now I get to do it as part of my job. I never thought I’d say that. The tuition I got was great and now I’m at a level where I can ski competitively.

Me and a few of the lads had some leave at the same time, so we decided to have a couple of days walking in the Lake District. It kept us fit and was a great laugh.

On deployment

I was deployed on HMS Bulwark when we needed to stop over in Cape Town. We got to spend some time in the city, and a few of us even had the opportunity to climb Table Mountain. It was a sensational place and an experience I’ll never forget.

On deployment

I was still training when we went over to the Mojave Desert to work with American marines and develop our skills in that unique environment. I’ve never experienced anything like it, and it was a real adventure from the moment we arrived.

Adventure

Unique experiences and new challenges are a constant feature of life as a Royal Marine. You’ll have the option to take part in our annual Adventurous Training (AT) weeks, or even tailor your own training if there’s something you’re particularly keen to try.

Adventurous Training gives you the opportunity to try new sports in new environments. Whichever you choose, AT helps you develop physical and mental robustness, while honing those all-important leadership skills that are indispensable. Every serving member of the Naval Service is entitled to five AT days every year.
