Our Gold expedition expertise is hard to match!
"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 working within it, who I have had the pleasure to meet and have found to be unequivocally professional and knowledgeable in the outdoor environment."
We make our experience and local knowledge count, well over 100 Gold expedition groups a season achieve their goals with us.
We can offer you an unique experience, exploring inspiring and challenging areas for the great adventure that is Gold DofE, with all the expedition paperwork, training and organisation completed on your behalf and dedicated, personal, support and assistance throughout the expedition planning process.
Gold expeditions are available in the wild, remote terrain of the Cambrian Mountains in Mid Wales, including the stunning Elan Valley and the wild expanses of the Plynlimon hills and surrounding area, well and truly off the beaten track. The sources of the rivers Severn and Wye as well as remote valleys and open moorland miles from civilisation make this area both a challenge and as described several times....."amazing".
We also offer selected areas within the Brecon Beacons National Park, focussing on lesser trodden routes, as well as the rugged Rhinogydd, or Rhinog Mountains in Southern Snowdonia, where again, groups can travel remotely barely seeing a soul.
Contact us for an informal discussion about your DofE Gold Expedition plans and how we can enhance these.
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.

Thank you for the best expedition ever!
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.
