Duke of Edinburgh Expedition Element

At Mountainwise we have been delivering DofE walking expeditions at Bronze, Silver and Gold level for over 25 years. We support the DofE co-ordinator at every step of the process. We complete all expedition notification paperwork including the Green Forms required for Silver and Gold expeditions, thus lifting a considerable burden from the DofE co-ordinator.

"I can thoroughly recommend the service provided by Mountainwise. They have been supremely efficient when it comes to organizing and planning for expeditions, and their long experience really shines through."

Noah Hillyard, University College School

Detailed classroom training: Our high staff ratio at classroom training sessions of 1 member of staff per 2 groups (maximum of 14 participants) allows for attention to detail at the planning stage.
