We are so proud that for the first time ever in Cheshire, we are able to launch a county-led Explorer Belt Expedition to Iceland to be held in the summer of 2021.

Explorer Scouts are being given a life-shaping opportunity to travel for 10 days on a discovery of Iceland’s cultural heritage, its environmental protection aims, their communities, delicacies and attractions of the country whilst completing eleven exciting projects. We are glad to be offering this to every eligible Explorer Scout and Network member in Cheshire and are committed to creating a totally inclusive adventure. Scroll down to sign up.
