Join an expedition

Our expeditions are designed to be life-changing. We take you to some of the most remote and challenging parts of the world.

Young people aged 16-25

It doesn’t matter where your starting point is; you’ll return with more confidence in your abilities; greater resilience, determination and courage - and a sense of self-belief that will stay with you for life. While your place on expedition is primarily funded by grants, trusts and generous donors, each expedition has a fundraising challenge to help you to develop useful skills and confidence.

Expeditions in partnership

These expeditions are for individuals who are involved with one of our partner organisations to reach specific groups, such as the socially disadvantaged and disabled people.

Train to be a Leader

Develop the skills and knowledge you need to become an expedition leader with our Trainee Leader course, as well as gaining a nationally recognised qualification.


Wow! What an expedition. This has undoubtedly been the best 5 weeks of my life… summiting peaks, listening to the Dali Lama and going on glaciers. I have found all the Science really interesting and have learnt so much about the world and myself. I would recommend this to all young people as it really has been amazing.

The expedition has been a life changing adventure that I definitely didn't expect, with some incredible memories and some amazing people that won’t ever be forgotten.

I loved every minute of what was a life changing experience with some amazing people. I feel I learnt valuable skills and am now in a position to go on to do an awful lot more than I would otherwise have been able to.

‘Five weeks in the Zara Valley has been an experience of a lifetime. Trekking to the highest peaks, battling altitude, the crisp ice as we scaled the glaciers… What an incredible adventure. I am not only taking away memories, I am taking home a wider appreciation for the environment.’ Jennie, Himalaya 2017

It’s been life changing. This has been the first programme I've gone on that's worked for me and has really impacted me. I’d describe myself before expedition as a shy and nervous kind of person who worries a lot, but after finishing the expedition I've really changed and I now feel confident in myself and my ability to push my limits.

As we left the jungle, I realised what an experience I had just had. The bus journey was the first time in 3 weeks where I had been able to completely stop and reflect on my experience. I am certainly more willing to try new things and feel more confident in myself as a person.
