DofE Locations

We work with schools and organisations across England and Wales.

For your convenience our Bronze DofE expeditions will generally run in countryside close to where you are based.  This is not essential though and the expeditions can be further afield.  The sort of locations we use at Bronze include places like Epping Forest, Ashdown Forest, White Peak of Derbyshire, Clwydians etc.

Silver DofE expeditions are in appropriate terrain, perhaps a little further afield than at Bronze.  Such expeditions will be in locations like the Chilterns, Surrey Hills, New Forest, Peak District, Black Mountains and Long Mynd/Shropshire.

Our wild country Gold DofE expeditions tend to run from our base in mid-Wales along with Dartmoor, the Brecon Beacons, Snowdonia and the Peak District (Dark Peak) but we can be flexible, with our staff having expedition experience across most of upland UK.

Pre-expedition training and route planning days are held across the country and normally from the convenience of your own school/building.


“All three instructors were excellent – the students were motivated by their teaching and they gave the students a wealth of skills which will enable them to succeed in their assessed expedition. The whole trip has been organised very well and has run very smoothly. Thank you very much!”

"Owen ran the weekend exceptionally well.  He gave very clear instructions to staff and students.  He formed very positive bonds with the students and so was able to get the best out of them."

“All safety measures in place. Excellent tutors and Course Director. Venue excellent and pupils taken through all safety procedures with walking activities to cooking.”
