DofE Open Practice and Qualifying Expeditions 

Join a group of like minded individuals who, for a variety of reasons, have not been able to complete their expedition with their local group or school.

Our aim is to assist in providing professionally delivered and supervised Bronze, Silver and Gold expeditions for all young people. Our comprehensive expedition programmes are ideal for making the expedition process challenging whilst enjoyable and achievable. 


With venues across the country, completing an Open DofE expedition by foot is by far the most popular method of travel. 

All of our expedition programmes include a period of training and familiarisation with our expert instructors. Once youv'e planned your route you'll take off with your team to complete your expedition supervised / assessed by our staff.

Cycling, the fastest growing participation sport in the UK and completing the DofE gold expedition by bike is incredible and rewarding.

Using all terrain bikes with a tag along trailer to carry the kit, teams will travel along forest tracks and quiet roads through some the most stunning landscapes.

Canoe DofE gold expeditions are a beautiful and tranquil way to travel. Using the waterways of the Lake District, Scotland and Wales for our expeditions, teams will see the world from a very different angle.

Following an intensive training in paddling techniques, safety, portage and navigation the young people will understand that team work and cooperation are at the heart of an expedition by 2-person canoe.
