Adventure Expeditions is exactly that: all year-end profits are used to further our aim of widening participation in outdoor activities for young people.

Each year we offer bursaries, funding and support to individuals and groups who may not otherwise be able to participate in activities such as DofE expeditions, supporting them financially, with equipment or helping to train leaders to deliver programmes independently to their students.

Support may be large or small, comprehensive or for part of a specific aim. If you have a project that you feel we might be able to support we would love to hear from you.

What We Do

Beyond delivering outdoor programmes and DofE expeditions across the UK and exciting locations overseas, everything that we do is rooted in quality, safety and experience.

Quality governs the programmes we offer, right from programme research and design through to our communications with you to delivery and review to make any adjustments for next time.

Safety underpins all of our actions and decisions and you can be reassured by the licences, insurance and quality badges that we have been awarded.

Experience allows us to deliver exciting, adventurous and authentic programmes in the outdoors - we don't just 'box tick' or put participants through programmes in 'sausage factory' mode. We draw on our team's pool of the highest qualifications and experience to produce something unique for you.
