Silver DofE Pembrokeshire

where to go for silver

Practice expeditions will normally be run within a couple of hours of your location. We have used the New Forest and edges of the Brecon Beacons National Park, as well as having some suitable Silver routes in the Elan Valley for a more remote experience.
Our personal favourite area is North Pembrokeshire, which features a great variety of terrain, quiet campsites and stunning sea views.

I'd like to know more about the Pembrokeshire trips, seems a long way?

All the Silver expeditions in Pembrokeshire have a travel and arrival day built in before the expedition. You camp overnight at a friendly, yet stunning campsite overlooking the sea. It’s a site some of us have used for over 20 years and still love going back to. The routes can include some coastal walks, hidden wooded valleys and almost a step back in time. We have spent time finding quiet camping spots that few others have discovered, all fitting into a variety of routes that inspire all groups who visit.
