Gold DofE canoeing adventures in Scotland

Whilst most groups we work with choose to do trekking expeditions, we love to mix things up here, and can provide all of the above for other modes of transport, including canoeing, kayaking, and cycling.

Whether you need us to take on your program from start to finish, or just need some qualified Expedition Assessors, we’ve got you covered. Whilst we’re based in South Devon, we provide expeditions across the UK, depending on the level of award. For Bronze and Silver, we use areas including the South Devon coastline, Dartmoor, Exmoor, Mendips, New Forest, Wye Valley and Forest of Dean. For Gold, we use areas further afield, including Brecon Beacons, Snowdonia, Lake District and Scotland. We also run Gold expeditions abroad, see below for more details.

Overseas Expeditions

Dynamic Adventures are proud to have been running Gold expeditions in countries around the world for many years. Whilst the mountainous regions of the UK can be wonderful, wild and challenging, nothing quite beats the adventure of exploring remote regions of the world. Some of the places we’ve taken groups to include:

  • French/ Swiss/ Italian Alps
  • Slovenia
  • Canada
  • Corsica

We’ll organise everything for you, including flights and travel, any accommodation and campsites, and our qualified staff will remotely supervise teams, with additional support vehicles where necessary.
