Escape routine for a few hours and rewild yourself
by discovering how intriguing your local wildlife really is!
What is a Mini Exped?
Wild Intrigue Mini Expeds bring a touch of wildness back into your week. Specially crafted by Wild Intrigue, each event brings the best of northern England’s incredible wildlife, inspiring locations, and delicious treats into a collection of unique, unforgettable experiences.
Since 2017 our popular Bats & Pizza Nights were fully booked each year, every year. This hunger for wildlife and local treats in northern England has only grown, meaning Wild Intrigue’s Mini Expeds have flourished into an ever-growing collection of weird and wonderful events, hosted in rural retreats and urban jungles across northern England.
Each Mini Exped is carefully created with nature and people at the forefront. Nature-minded landowners, local foodies and intriguing naturalists are an important part of these memorable experiences. Whether you compete to make ‘The Ultimate Stonebaked Pizza” on a Family Bats & Pizza Night, or discover the story behind Newcastle’s urban seafarers on a Kittiwakes & Doughnut Safari; the intrigue of nature is ready and waiting to be discovered on a Wild Intrigue Mini Exped.
Your Mini Exped Key
On each Mini Exped page you will find a Mini Exped Key. This tells you all you need to know, but if you have questions get in touch with Wild Intrigue.
A glimpse into what to expect on the Mini Exped; such as wildlife that's guaranteed and likely to be seen, any treats that are included and who's made them, and other 'good to know' stuff.
Where the Mini Exped will take place, what urban/ rural habitats to expect, and a brief insight into who manages the land, where appropriate. To respect the privacy of landowners, exact meeting locations will be provided upon booking in some instances.
Mini Expeds don't include accommodation, but who doesn't enjoy a cheeky rewilding break? Here you can find tips on local accommodation, as well as any special accommodation offers that might apply to your Mini Exped (treats!).
