About Us

A to Z Expeditions specialise in delivering Duke of Edinburgh's Award training and expeditions. We offer tailor-made programmes of DofE training and expeditions for schools and groups and we run open DofE expeditions for individuals and small groups. Participants can choose from walking, cycling or canoeing expeditions.

We are based in Herefordshire, in the foothills of the Brecon Beacons. We offer a friendly and personal service and are committed to delivering high quality training and expeditions. 


Our fantastic team of experienced instructors have led expeditions across the UK and around the world, from the Antarctic to the jungles of Borneo. They share a love of the outdoors and have an enthusiasm to pass this on. All our instructors have an excellent knowledge of the Duke of Edinburgh's Award and the majority are also DofE accredited assessors.

Minimising Environmental Impact

  • Our office and workshop only use energy from renewable and green technologies www.greenenergy.uk.com  
  • We support local businesses and buy from UK suppliers and manufacturers where possible.
  • As far as is practical we run a paperless office.
  • Any stationary that we do use is made from recycled paper or paper from sustainable forestry.
  • We aim to reduce waste, repair and re-use whatever we can and recycle anything which is no longer useful.
  • We aim to minimise company travel and encourage the use of shared or public transport for our groups.
  • Through our expedition programmes we aim to raise awareness of environmental issues.
