"I just wanted to drop you a note to say thanks to all of your team for the efforts you all put in, I think it was great that they were all thrown into a group of new friends and all got on so well. She particularly appreciated the background info the instructors gave with the good ‘tips’ on how to get the most out of the whole trip. They definitely got more out of the expedition as a whole by coming to you guys."

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.
