Create a wilderness feast!

Bushcraft is an eye-opener! We always find groups are blown away with what you can make with the most basic materials. Bushcraft incorporates making a lunch: were not talking slug stew rather three-courses of fire baked pizza, puddings and cooked chocolate bananas. A real opportunity to get together, learn and laugh.

Bushcraft options 

Full Day Bushcraft

A full day gives us the time to travel to an inspirational area. We will build shelters, whittling the tools needed to cook and eat, then cook up a delicious and nutritious three-course lunch.

Half Day Bushcraft

A quick visit to a local site to whip up a lunch works really well when booked with another activity nearby (Coniston, South Windermere or South Lakeland). A great add-on session to get some lunch in the most exciting way.

Canoe Bushcraft

This longer session gives us the ultimate opportunity to really develop your bushcraft skills. Paddling a canoe to a remote location on Windermere, we get away from the crowds before starting our bushcraft experience.
