Zest for Adventure is a specialist expedition provider staffed by experienced and enthusiastic adventure education instructors. During our years of exploring the outdoors, we have each travelled to many wonderful places and had many fantastic outdoor adventures.

Our mission is to introduce people of all ages to adventure activities, in a high-quality, safe and enjoyable outdoor experience.

We can provide a range of accredited outdoor education qualification programmes for both young people and adults. In particular, we can deliver the Duke of Edinburgh's Award Expedition Section at Bronze, Silver and Gold levels. Zest for Adventure is a DofE Approved Activity Provider for Expeditions. We also provide the Countryside Leader Award.

DofE Expedition Provision

The Duke of Edinburgh's Award (DofE) has the widest reach of any UK youth charity. A DofE programme is a real adventure from beginning to end. Zest for Adventure can offer a DofE Expedition Section programme at Bronze, Silver and Gold levels tailored to meet your requirements.

DofE Gold Expedition - The Dark Peak District - Following the Path

Open Expeditions

We offer a choice of Bronze, Silver and Gold walking expedition programmes run by friendly and experienced leaders who specialise in DofE expeditions. These expedition programmes are ideal for individuals or small groups who cannot make their school’s dates or who don’t have a team to complete their expeditions with.

Countryside Leader Award

The Countryside Leader Award (CLA) is for adults who wish to lead walks and camping expeditions in non-remote, lowland countryside. This corresponds with the recommended Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Bronze and Silver Expedition terrain. We offer both CLA Training and Assessment Courses.
