Parts of the content can also be regarded as buschcraft knowledge and include knowledge that can be obtained in similar bushcraft courses. The difference is that we use less tools and not much equipment, all to imitate a survival situation.
During the survival course you sleep outdoors in different shelters that you build yourself. Some foods to improve learning ability are included in the course, but a bit of starvation is also included and costs nothing extra.
You will learn more about yourself, how you respond to the unknown and physically and mentally difficulties under highly controlled forms. Even working with strangers in a unique situation improves your chances at a real emergency.
You will also get a few days very close to nature, you will experience the calm in front of the fire and staying in the woods away from everyday stress and responsibilities. This is usually highly appreciated.
During the course, you will be trained and supervised by highly experienced and professional instructors of broad experience since 2000 doing similar survival courses.
