Expedition Guide

Careful planning for an Expedition is essential. This guide brings together some of the experience Wildside Outdoors has gained in Expedition planning to help you get the most out of your Expedition with us.

This guide is not intended to be an all-inclusive summary of all areas to consider in the planning process (that would be a very long read) but instead concentrates on some of the key areas to consider in planning for an Expedition. We cover: what to bring (Expedition Kit), what to wear (Expedition Clothing), how to pack it all in a rucksack (Expedition Packing) and what to eat (Expedition Food). We also provide some notes on a suggested First Aid Kit.

DofE provide a good Kit List which can be accessed here https://www.dofe.org/shopping/dofe-expedition-kit-list/. There is a mobile version as well as a printed version so you can tick off items as and when you acquire them.
