School Trips - International DofE Walking & Kayaking Expeditions
At Inspired Expeditions we are specialist DofE Expedition providers and our experience is in creating International Gold Assessment Expeditions. Our biggest expedition at the moment is our dual transport Gold assessment in Norway - Walking and Paddling. As a part of the package you get 4 expeditions; 2 weekends training in at our HQ in Marlow, 1 week practice in Inverarnan, Scotland and then 9 days assessment in Norway that includes an R&R day, canyoning and a celebration BBQ.
We could create something like this for you!
Why should you consider Inspired Expeditions for School Trips and Educational Visits?
Our locations offer stunning scenery, our staff provide brilliant training & supervision and this creates a Gold expedition that will not be forgotten. We provide trackers for our groups and have a designated emergency phone procedure to go along with it. Our training weekends will provide all the knowledge a participant would need to get them confident in terrain and mode of transport chosen. We hire out all big ticket items of equipment as part of the cost and have route planning days and kit issues as a part of the package.

What size groups do you cater for?
Is there first aid on site?
All full time staff are REC2 First Aid trained.
Do you offer access for visitors with disabilities?
Unfortunately due to the nature of the expeditions we are unable to offer Disabled Facilities for these expeditions.
Do you cater for visitors with Special Educational Needs (SEN)?
Yes, we would be able to provide staff to help facilitation. We would need to discuss individual needs and how we can support participants.
We would love to discuss your ideas & needs with you to tailor make a package for you. Teachers places are free on the expedition for those who are going as supervisors. Feel free to call us to organise a visit to discuss further.
