Welcome, but don't get too comfortable. You are about to change your life.

Join an ExpeditionHelp Us

Since 1932, British Exploring Society has been taking young people to extraordinary destinations, both in terms of the places they visit and in their own lives.



As a charity, we work with partners to open up opportunities for young people to discover remote and challenging parts of the world – places like the Canadian Yukon and Iceland.

Join an Expedition

Explore with us and you will be challenged. You’ll have to dig deep but we know that you’ll find qualities within yourself that will surprise you.


An amazing and fantastic life-changing experience.

Our Impact

We believe that young people need the right skills, behaviours, and confidence to tackle contemporary challenges and opportunities. In assessing impact, we consider our success in supporting young people to acquire these skills, behaviours, and confidence through our programmes.
