Challenge without compromise – bespoke global DofE expedition expertise

The Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme changes the lives of young people with its unique mix of personal development, challenge and achievement.

To ensure this amazing opportunity is available to as many people as possible, Sam Sykes™ Ltd delivers professionally led DofE award expeditions across the UK and overseas. With over 30 years’ experience in organising and leading expeditions at all levels, we combine practical experience and legislative knowledge with a real thirst for adventure.

Our expeditions challenge participants without ever compromising their safety, meaning young people benefit from a challenging and memorable experience delivered by dedicated and qualified leaders, while schools and youth organisations gain peace of mind from knowing they are in safe hands.

Operating from our base in the heart of the UK’s best adventure playground, the Lake District, we offer a totally flexible approach to ensure every trip delivers exactly what you need – and more!

The Sam Sykes benefits:

  • Decades of experience of organising and leading expeditions across the globe.
  • Fully licensed and approved by the Adventure Activities Licensing Authority (your guarantee that every activity is designed within rigorous guidelines and focused on the safety of all).
  • Fully Insured.
  • A totally flexible approach, to provide a unique experience every time. From planning, admin and training to assessments, supervision, equipment and actually delivering the expedition itself, we’ve got all you need for the adventure of a lifetime.
  • A service level agreement in place that shows exactly what you can expect – and will get – from us while removing your financial obligation should you no longer need our services.
