After a cracking Summer of Adventure 2023, it’s easy to feel as though nothing can surpass such incredible experiences! While adventure is often associated with summertime, you’ll be pleased to hear that our destinations are not limited to just one season… In fact, many of our destinations offer year-round discovery, or their moment to shine actually falls outside of the summer months.

Regardless of the time of year, you and your group can dive headfirst into an exhilarating and action-packed world of exploration and adventure!

We spoke to our team, and they’ve crafted a collection of their absolute favourite destinations to visit during alternative prime periods!

Take a look…

October Half Term:
One for The Battlefields or The Land of Fire and Ice

The Battlefields

Walk through reconstructed trenches, stand on the very ground that men fought and died for, and bring home the reality of the conflict as you take a trip to some of the area’s cemeteries and memorials – from the large and imposing areas dedicated to tens of thousands of servicemen and women, to the smaller and more personal areas erected to remember individual soldiers and regiments.

This Battlefields trip will have your group step into the story in an all-encompassing and immersive way…

Iceland

Where else can you venture beneath caves, hike across glaciers, ride along trails and snorkel between continents? Explore some of the world’s most unique and awe-inspiring geographical wonders on a Scouting or Guiding trip to Iceland. 

Scouting and Guiding groups are welcomed to Úlfljótsvatn Scout Centre, Iceland, an extensive site with camping or indoor accommodation nestled in the heart of the Icelandic countryside. This is truly the perfect base for any adventure enthusiast to explore the Southern Coast of Iceland.

And don’t leave without spending a couple of nights in the unique and wonderful city of Reykjavik. Shop for souvenirs, try some local delicacies, take in the famous sights, visit the fascinating Perlan Museum, and so much more. Experience the best of both worlds in this unique and intriguing country!
