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.

Thank you for making my expeditions so much fun! I would recommend Expedition Wales to anyone, and if you have people uncertain about doing an open expedition on their own, please tell them they DEFINITELY should. I've had a brilliant time this summer, taking away some wonderful memories and making some great friends.

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.
