Duke Of Edinburgh Bronze

What we offer

We are expedition experts.

We will help you; design your expedition, guide you through organising travel logistics both too and from the expedition as well as throughout it, teach you the skills to travel efficiently in your choice of craft, provide all the extra equipment you need and a million other things to make sure that your expedition is designed around you and your needs.

We have worked hard to be able to offer our Paddlesports expedition packages at the same price as walking. This includes the use of all extra equipment like the craft (canoe, kayak & SUP), buoyancy aids, paddles, dry bags etc.

You have two options when it comes to Bronze DofE Expeditions, the modern and traditional programme.

  • Modern programme consists of 2 separate training days followed by an assessed expedition of 2 days and 1 night
