Direct Expeditions

 

We offer a choice of DofE Direct 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 are enrolled with DofE Direct.

Expedition Programme Format

Zest for Adventure’s Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Direct Expedition Programmes comprise:

  • Practice: 5 days

  • Qualifying: 5 days

The Practice Expedition includes the required Expedition Training programme. The expeditions both involve carrying full expedition equipment and camping overnight. They are both compulsory: full and successful attendance at both of the required expeditions is necessary in order for participants to be eligible to complete the DofE Expedition Section. Any participants who miss either expedition will need to arrange to complete t at it later date or on an open expedition with another approved expedition provider.
