Our Gold expedition expertise is hard to match - 10 years and over 1000 gold expedition groups.
"A massive thank you to all of your team for preparing our Gold students on their practice expedition which enabled them to succeed on their qualifying expedition. Not only is it a credit to the individual students, but to your AAP and team who are unequivocally professional and knowledgeable in the outdoor environment."
We make our experience and local knowledge count.
Gold expeditions are available in the wild, remote terrain of the Cambrian Mountains in Mid Wales, selected areas within the Brecon Beacons National Park, as well as the rugged Rhinogydd Mountains in Southern Snowdonia.
For a truly memorable Gold Assessment, we offer the opportunity to walk across the Cambrian Mountains, finishing at the sea.
New for 2021 - we now offer a convenient, flexible option for groups who have missed out on Gold expeditions due to Covid19 restrictions.
'Open' dates are available for you to book as groups of between 4 and 7.

Thank you for all the trouble you went through to make our trip amazing! I had some feedback from parents and they are very impressed by the level of organisation the fact that their children felt safe and pushed themselves to the limit :) I had a few comments about how much the students had learnt about themselves. I was really impressed by the level of professionalism and experience of your team.

I completed my Gold D of E expedition with Expeditions Wales and had a fantastic time! I had a great leader and learnt so many new skills. I enjoyed my practice expedition with Expeditions Wales so much that I went back for my assessment. I would recommend Expeditions Wales to anyone.

Aled, Alix and colleagues,
I just wanted to say thank you for running such a great expedition. Robyn returned home having really enjoyed her time in Wales and I think that was mainly due to the attitude and commitment of the leaders. She not only feels the expected sense of achievement but also a genuine desire to continue with outdoor pursuits in the future. Amazing!
I am so glad that the girls decided to undertake the expedition independently with you.
