This 7-day programme allows you to complete your whole Gold Expedition Section in one go.
The DofE have currently changed the ways in which you can achieve your expedition section, to try and make it easier to go on expedition during the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. This includes being able to complete your expeditions back-to-back.
How does a ‘back to back’ expedition work?
You will still complete your training and practice expedition, but then you will go straight into your qualifying expedition rather than having a period of rest and reflection. This means you’ll be walking for six says in a row (the first day is a training day where you’ll mainly be at your campsite). The distances each day will be shorter than on a usual Gold expedition, but this expedition still requires a good level of fitness!
