Head for the Hill (An AALA and DofE Approved Activity Provider) are running Gold Open Practise and Qualifying expeditions in the Peak District on Monday 10th April – Sat 15th April 2023

This will consist of a two day Practice followed by four day Qualifier – an option for those who consider themselves fit and physically confident about walking in the hills for 6 days.
Practice involves reviewing and improving navigation, teamwork and campcraft skills in the beautiful Hope Valley for the 2 day expedition with highly qualified and supportive Instructors.
Qualifying will see groups heading out onto the Dark Peak for the 4 day expedition with remote supervision in place to ensure safety while allowing independent group travel.

Equipment (including tents, trangia stoves, maps, compasses and group first aid kits) will be provided by Head for the Hill. You will need to provide a rucksack and sleeping bag if possible – although we can lend you these as well. You will need a lightweight raincoat and walking boots.

An initial training day will be organised before the expedition and is included in the cost.
