North Wales

26 – 27 September 2015

Over 250 initial applications were received for Ex Ice Maiden – more than any other Army adventurous training expedition. Fifty of those women were then invited to a selection weekend in Capel Curig, North Wales.

The women were put through a number of team building and physically challenging tasks, and were each interviewed by the expedition leaders.

Twenty-two women were then invited to the next stage, Ex Ice Bambi – a foundation training exercise in Norway in February 2016.


To identify those with physical potential and a suitable mental attitude.

To bring together women from different areas of the Army, inspiring them to develop their own adventures together.
