Explorer Belt 2025

The Region are running another Explorer Belt in 2025 which will take place in Norway

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.

The Explorer Belt is not the same as a Queen’s Scout Award / Duke of Edinburgh Expedition. You are not required to be self sufficient or walk set distances – the Explorer Belt is your chance to EXPLORE Romania.

Between £2,000 – £2,500
