The Youth Adventure Trust’s Baffin Island Expedition is the ultimate personal challenge. You will experience the elements as never before. You will push your physical and mental limits. You will discover your true self.
The terrain is challenging, the location is remote and the weather can change rapidly without warning. Very few are prepared to brave the elements to see some of the world’s most fantastic scenery at its most dramatic. Are you one of them?
Baffin Island is an arctic wilderness of jagged mountain peaks, deep valleys, steep walled fjords and eternal glacial ice. Located above the Arctic Circle, this powerful landscape reflects the Inuit belief that time is infinite and unending. Walking and skiing through the Auyuittuup Park, we will explore this remarkable environment and experience the majesty of the Arctic.
A team of 12 in total will attempt a ski traverse of the Akshauk Pass which involves travelling over 140 miles through remote and challenging terrain in temperatures as low as -25 C.

"I feel more confident about talking to people, taking part in more things to what I would normally. I feel more confident by getting to know myself and who I really am."
"I would like to say a big thank you and how grateful I am for you allowing me to take part in the fantastic camps and events you arranged. They have had a huge impact on my confidence, self-esteem and ability to socialise with other people of my own age."
"I am just writing to thank you for letting me come to the Youth Adventure Trust and what an effect it has had on me in the long term... This really boosted my confidence in myself and I don't think I would be able to interact with others like I do now if it was not for this amazing scheme... [it] has changed my life and I hope it does for others like myself."

Inspiring young lives
Outdoor adventure can have a massive impact on somebody's life. Especially when you are 11 and vulnerable.
The Youth Adventure Trust works with disadvantaged young people from the age of 11 until they are 14. Many of them are struggling at school, aren't able to fit in, hate being in the classroom, have no positive role model, no aspirations, or chaotic and unstable home lives. They could be young carers looking after a parent or other family member, they may be in foster care, on the brink of getting a criminal record or being excluded from school.
Their circumstances make it all too easy for these young people to make poor choices that will affect the rest of their lives. By taking them outside, we help them discover their true potential and exceed their expectations. We use outdoor adventure to inspire them and give them the hope, confidence and skills to face their personal challenges. We stop them becoming another statistic.
