Gwentrek is the ultimate expedition challenge for Scouts and Explorers in Gwent.

Be self sufficient, walk against the clock in teams with or without leaders. If that isn't enough if you find the normal routes too easy and fancy a bigger challenge take on GTx!

All you have to do is take part in the expedition, take on the bases, cook, camp and navigate for yourselves - do this with as little leader support as possible to earn the maximum points and win the trophy.
