What do expeditions typically cost?

Costs of individual expeditions vary depending on the details of each but here are indicative costs for 2021. As all our expeditions are run by volunteers these are normally much lower than schools and other commercial organisations who typically pay professional instructors.

Award Level

SEEE Guide (Hillwalking)

Other Providers – Example Costs


£14 (2 days, Pentlands)

£35 – £130


£40-£65 ( 3 days, Lammermuirs )

£70 – £190

Biking expeditions typically cost £20 more than hillwalking to cover the hire of bike trailers.

The only extra personal costs are typically for transport to/from the expedition area and food/snacks, and if any personal kit is needed.

While they may be less than many options, if they do make it difficult to take part at this time, please do contact us as we want expeditions to be available to every Explorer Scout, and we will do all we can to make it possible.

We will confirm the specific cost for every expedition before asking Explorers to reserve places.
