Embark on an extraordinary journey with Wildside Outdoors, a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to fostering the personal growth of young individuals through adventure. 

Working together to inspire growth through adventure​

We work collaboratively with our clients as we understand there is no single way to run an expedition that meets the required needs. Our delivery models are bespoke to each school. We ensure consistent quality of delivery throughout the expedition and actively engage with our clients to see how we can improve further.
We believe we have the best instructors. They are the core of our business and the key reason why we get so much positive feedback.

Why Choose Us?

Our flexible offering allows us to tailor our packages from fully outsourced expeditions to providing assistance alongside you. We can plan and run the entire expedition or can provide instructors and assessors as required.

We are proud of our open and inclusive culture and we let that define us as an organization. Our teaming ethos means our expeditions are places where participants have great experiences and can achieve goals they may not have thought possible.

We get amazing feedback from the schools we work with, the participants and our Instructors.

“The expedition was
really well planned
and executed”

Your journey with us will start with a meeting to understand what your needs are and we maintain contact with you throughout. We provide on-site training before the expedition and attend as appropriate.

“We love your social purpose”

We are a not-for-profit company
with a purpose. We put an element of our profits into working with charities to assist young people with mental health difficulties.

“I achieved so much more than I thought I was able to”

Our staff work with all participants to ensure they have the best experience possible. We focus on teamwork and helping to build resilience and self-reliance.
