UK Explorers takes British Exploring Society’s unique approach, based around Adventure, Knowledge and Personal Development, to a slightly more accessible location.
This is our first-ever programme to take place in the UK and 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 in Scotland, you will have a chance to agree as a group where you will be exploring. 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.
The safety and support of our Explorers is the cornerstone on which we build and develop an expedition from conception through to departure and return.
Absolutely amazing and a life-changing experience. I will never forget this.

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.
