Our Silver Award expeditions build upon the skills develop at Bronze. The Silver Award pushes groups even further, leading to a self sufficient 3 day / 2 night journey. Seven purposeful hours per day mean that groups will be journeying further, for longer, on more challenging terrain.
Absolute Adventure can support groups with their training via training materials,delivering in-school training sessions, training weekends and the use of additional staff to focus on skills development during the practice journey. Our staff are very experienced in running Duke of Edinburgh Award Exepditions in the UK and the UAE, with staff certified to assess qualifying journeys.
There are more options for Silver award; each with varying levels of challenge. Using our Absolute Bulgaria staff, along with other teams around the world, we offer Silver expeditions in the following countries:
In the UAE, Oman and Bulgaria, Silver expeditions can be undertaken on foot (hiking), kayak or mountain bike. Our Silver expeditions in Nepal are hiking only. Regardless of the location of your expedition, you will be fully supported by our team of UAE based staff who will help the group with their preparations and also travel with you.
We use a mixture of close and remote supervision techniques to ensure that groups are as independant as safely possible. All expeditions are supported by experienced staff with Wilderness First Aid qualifications, off-road 4x4 vehicle support, manned checkpoints and water points, and GPS group tracking. Staff are in radio contact with each other throughout the journey and carry a satellite phone with emergency beacon in case of emergency.
