Gold Expeditions for Schools & groups of 5+

Gold Walking, Canoeing or Cycling expeditions anywhere in the UK… and beyond.

Give us the opportunity to show you how good we are and how much participants enjoy learning and growing with us. Our participant feedback is so good we’re confident you’ll be back year after year.

Don’t believe us (we would say we’re good!) contact us and we’ll put you in touch with other teachers and group leaders who work with us to deliver expeditions. We know that it’s hard to trust someone new with your young people, which is why we like you to talk to our partners.

 Prices from £48-£72 (£40-£60 + VAT) per participant/per day depending on equipment requirements – Campsite fees included


Come and do your Gold DofE expedition in the true wilderness of Mid Wales. Our friendly staff and Instructors are committed to respecting and protecting the environment we live and work in. We will work hard to pass on our knowledge of the Cambrian
Mountains and its stunning valleys, where we’ve had the pleasure of introducing hundreds of young people to this fantastic, but little known area.

Or, why not try the Rhinog area in the Snowdonia National Park. A truly wild bit of country with a lot less tourist traffic than other areas of the Park.

We can and have run expeditions in Snowdonia, Brecon Beacons, Yorkshire Dales & North York Moors.

In Belgium, France or Italy…

Want to go futher afield? The Jura in France? The Dolomites in Italy? Cycling in Belgium and Holland?

Prices for trips abroad start from £75 per day per participant but Expeditions are priced individualy depending on group/school transport, accommodation & extra activity requirements.

 Who we are

Our Instructors include a former DofE County Award Officer and Wild Country Panel Secretary, a Youth Worker, a teacher and Mountain Leaders who provide all round support and advice for Award participants and their leaders. We enjoy our work outdoors and we pride ourselves on passing on our knowledge in a way that ensures participants learn a lot, respect the environment, have fun and enjoy their outdoor experience.

We can arrange Expeditions to suit your requirements and dates almost any time between Easter and the end of October.

Thank you again for all your help. They were so chuffed and pleased with themselves for finishing despite all odds.

Safety: The safety of young people on our expeditions is our first priority, with experienced staff, well reconnoitered routes and all groups tracked using the latest Spot Gen3 satellite trackers.

Our comprehensive training package will ensure participants have the right skills, knowledge and attitude to complete their assessment.
