First steps

Walking & Camping

At BXM Expeditions we have been involved in the outdoors for years and pride ourselves on being able to give sound and honest advice to anyone looking to reach the hills or the mountains.

Whether you’re heading out on a multi-day gold expedition in the Scottish mountains or an overnight bronze expedition in Cheddar gorge we have got you covered.


No matter where you’re going you need to make sure your kit is kept dry and your bag is full of everything you need. Below you’ll find a video on how to pack your rucksack for a walking expedition. If your bag is packed in this way you’ll be sure to have an fun and safe expedition.


Make sure you check all your kit before you go. Make sure that your batteries on your head torch work and that your compass needle is pointing the right way. Double checking things like how many pairs of socks you have and that you have remembered your spork will make for a much more enjoyable experience.
