Bushcraft canoe weekend

Canoeing and Bushcraft go together like tea and cake! A weekend of foraging and learning Bushcraft skills on the river.

There will be opportunities at each of our stops to learn some key Bushcraft skills, including how to light a fire without matches, and have a go at some natural crafts and cordage.

Pitching camp by the water's edge, some campfire cuisine and a night under the stars (or in your tent). Experience the magic of a night walk to call owls and spot bats. In the morning we'll enjoy the symphony of nature and breakfast around the fire. After this we’ll slowly make our way back to civilization feeling revived after our full immersion in the natural world.


Times:10am till lunchtime the following day.
