Registration for the planning, training for and doing a 4 day (3 night) qualifying Gold expedition.

What counts for your Gold Expedition?

The Gold Expedition section of The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award requires you to plan, train for and complete an unaccompanied, self-reliant expedition with an agreed aim. Prior to your qualifying 4-day expedition you must do the correct Gold level training relevant to your mode of travel.

Your Gold Expedition can be completed on foot, by bicycle, by boat, by canoe or kayak or by wheelchair, but essentially must be completed by your own physical efforts where the route is one continuous journey.

Action4Youth Gold Expedition Programme

Our 2019 gold programme is a comprehensive package that includes all training, a certificated first aid course, the 2 expeditions required and, unlike other expedition providers, all transport to and from the expedition locations. There are no other costs.
