BXM Expeditions was founded by Ben Maxfield, once a DofE manager, teacher and mountaineer and now a consultant and advisor. Ben is passionate about young people being able to access the outdoors regardless of their geographical location, their background, financial or emotional situation.
Our vision was to change the overpriced outdoor market for young people to make it more accessible and affordable for everyone to get in to the outdoors safely. With a passion for delivering the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, we’re able to price ourselves at the lower end of the market, but be at the top of our field for safety, expert knowledge and value for money.
Today BXM Expeditions is one of the largest expedition companies in the UK and BXM still runs in the same way with the same ethos and values, with over 80 instructors. BXM is the UK’s leading company in its field working with schools from all over the country and running expeditions all over Britain from Scotland to the South Coast.
