Explorer Belt

Fancy an expedition to explore a foreign country as part of a small team of Explorers or Network members, and achieve one of the Top Awards in Scouting? If so, an Explorer Belt could be for you.

We are currently working with several Explorer and Network teams to the following destinations in 2022:

  • Denmark
  • Faroe Islands
  • Iceland
  • Norway

Details on future opportunities will be announced here shortly.

What is an Explorer Belt?

The Explorer Belt is a challenge of a lifetime.
It is a chance to take part in a ten-day expedition that brings you a real understanding of a different country, its culture and way of life.

You will develop this understanding by travelling through the chosen country, working as part of a small team to complete a series of projects and most importantly by meeting local people.

It is an experience and an achievement that you will remember for the rest of your life.


Be an Explorer Scout aged 16 or over, or a Scout Network member at the time of the expedition.


You and your team will prepare your own budget with support from our Explorer Belt Support Team, however based on previous experience the cost for these Explorer Belt destinations is typically in the region of £1,000 but this will be confirmed before final sign up is required.


There will be a number of workshops and training days / weekends which you will be expected to attend. These are when you will undertake the preparation work for your Explorer Belt. Details of future workshops will be announced here shortly.
