The Society’s outstanding reputation in this field has been built up over many years, across four continents and over seventy major expeditions.

These ventures represent a unique challenge, and provide testing situations for all participants. Expeditions last between two and five weeks and take place in remote locations across the globe, including the UK

Applicants, who come from all parts of the UK, are initially invited to attend a selection course. But this is only the starting point. To become part of a cohesive team every successful candidate participates in planning, preparation and training for the expedition.
