Unique DofE Experience

If you’ve ever munched on Kendal Mint Cake on a Bronze or Silver DofE expedition, this is your chance to explore its birthplace - the breathtaking scenery, market towns and charming sleepy villages of the Lake District. And if you’ve never tried it, quick, stock up! Doing your Gold DofE expedition here will see you on a journey through glacier-gouged valleys, green pastures, past blue ribbon lakes and high, lonely tarns. You’ll stay in a combination of wild camps and secluded farm sites, so this is a great choice for expeditioners who love the thought of Gold DofE on their CV but would like the occasional use of a proper loo.
