We are passionate outdoor experts, based in the green and friendly city of Munich, Germany- a natural springboard for a multitude of outdoor activities, cultural tours and adventures.

We provide unique opportunities for schools, businesses, groups and individuals (local and international) to explore, challenge and discover more about the environment, local culture and themselves through experiences in the great outdoors. 

We are a leading provider of the Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award in Germany- from setting up and administering Award work in schools to organising expeditions and residential projects in Bavaria.

We design outdoor educational programmes and residential trips for schools, offering an exciting and enriching complement to academic education. Our programmes provide real-life learning experiences, which challenge and inspire; instilling a sense of self-worth, life values, respect for one another and the environment.

Whether its a team-building day trip or a multi-day camp experience you would like for your business team, school class or sports team- we tailor our events to your needs- in English or auf Deutsch.
