Expeditions Wales

Main Navigation





Expeditions Wales offers a range of Expedition opportunities at all levels of The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, from localised expedition training, to Gold expeditions exploring the wilds of Wales, on foot, bike or on horseback.

Our belief is that the Outdoors is to be enjoyed safely and responsibly by all.
We encourage and demonstrate safe practices, considered decision making and above all, ensure that it is not our expedition, but one that belongs entirely to those taking part in it.

Gold Expeditions on Foot and Horseback!

Gold Expedition packages for Schools & Groups are offered across all the wild country areas of Wales, a choice between our dedicated base camp in the captivating Cambrian Mountains, further adventures in the rugged Rhinogs, scenic Snowdonia or bouncing Brecon Beacons.

In 2013 we started offering DofE Gold Horse Riding expeditions in partnership with Cantref Riding Centre in the Brecon Beacons, this continues in 2014 with course dates all but full already.

Our Open Gold Expeditions provide great value and come recommended by many organisations, leaders and participants, prices from £195.00 for a full course including training, supervision, assessment, group equipment and support through every part of the expedition section.

DofE on Horseback

In partnership with Cantref Riding Centre, near Brecon we are now offering Open Gold Expeditions on Horse Back, a truly memorable and challenging way to complete your Gold Expedition in the Brecon Beacons.
We organise the expeditions, route planning, groups, pre course information and provide group equipment, whilst Cantref Riding Centre provide their reliable, trustworthy horses and all the horse riding equipment.
A perfect blend of expedition skills provided by ourselves and sure footed, gentle natured horses provided by Cantref.

Cycling Expeditions

What better way to achieve your Gold or Silver, than to have undertaken the additional challenge of exploring 3 – 4 times the area a walking expedition would.
We offer Cycling expeditions throughout the Welsh Wild Country areas, with Silver expeditions offered in out of the way, yet still remote and stunning areas. All the equipment can be supplied to ensure that you are receiving equipment that is strong enough to keep up with you!

Silver Expeditions

We offer a range of options for Silver, including Open Silver expeditions based in Wales. Our Silver expeditions are offered across the U.K. from the South Downs, Shropshire, Quantocks, up to the borders of Wales and for a true taste of something different, along the remote coastal areas and stunning valleys of West Wales. Silver Expeditions start from £135.00 per person.

Bronze Expedition Packages

Due to demand, we are now offering a range of flexible, tailored Bronze expedition packages for Schools & Groups, with expeditions based within an hour of your location, providing an opportunity for participants to go beyond their normal boundaries, yet not have a massive burden of travel costs.
Bronze Packages for Schools start from £180.00 per person.

We pride ourselves on providing an enthusiastic, friendly and young person centred approach.
