Every year we provide opportunities for individuals and groups to directly experience the irreplaceable quality of wilderness.
Our participants benefit from nature’s significant contribution to the discovery of identity and perspective, as well as leadership training and development.
Each of our programmes has a wilderness trail at its heart.   This can be anything from five to fifteen days spent in as remote a location as possible.
Our programmes are delivered in England, Scotland and Wales and further afield in the pristine wilderness areas of South Africa.
