"To strive, to seek, to find and not to yield."
Our company philosophy is probably best summed up by T S Elliot;
“We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.”
BPE offers expeditions to the country or continent of your choice.
We run several types of trips, for schools we offer The Adventure, The Classic & The Expedition… For adults we offer STEM, the Fuch’s Foundation and our Polar trips. All of our trips are bespoke and organised in consultation with you. We work on a small team basis, where everybody involved knows who to talk to and who does what.
