On foot

These are just some examples of ideas for aims. You and your team should create an aim that is personal and interesting to you – and suitable for your expedition area and mode of travel.


  • Explore and document cairns in Scotland
  • Investigate Roman sites around Hadrian’s Wall
  • Photograph and describe interesting old buildings along your route
  • Explore an historic place made famous in a film and document the scenery


  • As a team, identify different team roles and rotate each day
  • Create a series of communication signals to use within your team
  • Do a fun team game or challenge each day to promote team building
  • Make a video diary of your teams experiences, from camping and cooking to researching your destination
  • Monitoring and evidencing the impact of a physically demanding expedition on the body by walking all day and measuring calorie intake, heart rate and pulse compared too normal. 


  • Decorate a white t-shirt, using inspiration from the scenery that you see along your route
  • Search for forms of fungi, photograph or sketch them and record them
  • List and film the different kinds of birds you see
  • As second mini aim, draw all the different star constellations that you see
