SURVIVAL, EXPEDITION and NAVIGATION SKILLS COURSES

Whilst we believe in our mantra of "Adventure is a Mindset" there is no arguing it's also dictated by your skillset. Expand your skillset and you expand your scope and potential for future expedition and adventures.

We run courses in survival and expedition skills giving you skills to plan and prepare for your own adventures. Our courses cover a wide range of subjects from basic survival skills such as fire and shelter to  advanced camp craft, wilderness first aid, and preparing for longer more remote expeditions.
