Hartz Scottish Explorers is an expedition programme that takes British Exploring Society’s unique approach, based around Adventure, Knowledge and Personal Development, to a slightly more accessible location in the Highlands of Scotland.
Whilst it is a complete, self-contained expedition journey in itself, it may also act as a stepping stone onto our international expeditions.
During your first day at base camp you will have a chance to agree as a group where you will be exploring during your time in the Scottish Highlands. Some of your objectives might include the summits of spectacular hills or exploring a secluded valley whilst other objectives will be set according to your science plan.
It has taught me that I am capable of anything.

It doesn't matter where your starting point is; you'll return with more confidence in your own abilities; greater resilience, determination and courage - and a sense of self-belief that will stay with you for life.
