Expedition Areas

We will work with you to choose a suitable location for your group. Whether you are looking for something in your local area, or you want to visit a new and more adventurous location, we can help.

We work nationally so expedition areas can be at your discretion. For Gold level we recommend the training be carried out at the school’s location, the practice at the most convenient wild country area and the qualifying venture where the participants would like to expedition.

Cost

All training and expeditions cost £45 per person per day (minimum 10 participants per group). A simple pricing policy – keeping it easy to calculate bespoke costs.
