Discovering Wilderness

We are a membership organisation which offers guided adventurous expeditions on foot, by canoe and by bike, as well as providing expedition training. We run expeditions across the UK but mostly in the wilder corners of Great Britain. All expeditions are led by highly experienced, qualified and insured instructors.

Our philosophy is to support more people to discover, explore and connect with wilderness.
