Duke Of Edinburgh Gold

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 using your chosen method of transport, provide all the extra equipment you need and a million other things to make sure that your expedition is planned to perfection.

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.

Open Gold Expeditions

If you are an individual or a small group looking for a Gold DofE Expedition, we can definitely help. We provide both canoeing and walking Open expeditions.
