At Gold we try to give you as much choice over your expedition as possible we work with a number of Approved Activity Providers to give you a choice.
Walking is by far our most popular mode of transport but we have had students complete their expedition on horseback, kayaking and sailing. Please speak to Mrs Kirby about what mode of transport you would like and she will be able to support you find the right expedition.
At Gold the walking expedition must take place in "wild" country and students are also give the opportunity to "wild" camp. This means walking up to the remote hills and mountains and pitching your tent in a suitable location, usually close to a water source. Students have to be prepared to dig their own toilet and collect water from the streams. The added bonus is that the following day there is less uphill climbing as the climbing was completed the day before.
Here are some of the feedback from students who have wild camped:
