NEW 2021 DATES - Starting to go live...

COVID update -

Our first course on the year will be the Spring forager, starting on the 23rd of April 2021, a week after the government’s date when all non-essential retail and outdoor activity providers can reopen. As we are essentially wild camping, bringing your own tent is seen as self-contained accommodation, so overnight stays are fine.

Without listing all the rigorous sanitation and hygiene procedures and protocols we have in place, rest assured that you will be well looked after. Social distancing bubbles will be maintained, as you arrived i.e. if two people arrive together in a car, that will be your bubble, if you arrived alone on the train, then you will need to try to maintain your 2m distance - there is a lot of space in the woods and transition rates outdoors have been proven to be very, very low.

With regards to group size, we will not be accepting bookings for groups of more than six until after the 17th of May deadline. As of 12th March, in England, outdoor non-contact sports and organised group exercise allowed for all adults, in groups of up to 15 people. We will be capping course numbers at 12, with three instructors until the mid May.


Wild Human Covid Secure Statement -

Wild Human is fully committed to safeguarding the health and safety of our course participants and instructors.

We are aware of and comply with the government’s advice, Public Health England and the Health and Safety Executive guidance.

• We have carried out a comprehensive COVID-19 risk assessment and added COVID-19 protocols to our pre-course information and initial safety briefing
• We will provide cleaning, hand washing and hygiene provisions and protocols in line with guidance
• We will strongly advise that the two-metre social distancing rule is adhered to where possible
• Where it is difficult for people to maintain the two-metre social distancing rule, we will do everything possible to manage the COVID-19 transmission risk.

If anyone receives a phone call from Test and Trace, 24 hours before the start instructing them to self-isolate, or if their home community is locked down, or in the event of South Lakes being locked down without notice, then all course participants will be offered a no-hassle course transfer valid until 31 Dec 2022.

Please do not book as a group of more than six.

Upon booking you will be asked to reply to an email, simply stating that you agree to the below -

"I declare that neither myself or any members of my domestic bubble have any of the government listed symptoms prior to this weekend's course (on the understanding that some people can be asymptomatic) – and that if anything changes between now and Friday that I will notify Wild Human immediately.

I understand the government defined symptoms, the required social distancing recommendations, will abide by Wild Human protocols and will adopt the appropriate behaviour.

I also acknowledge that if protocols are repeatedly ignored or broken, then I may be asked to leave the course, for my own safety and that of others. I also agree to Wild Human retaining my contact details for 21 days after the course ends, in the event that Wild Human is contacted by Public Health England’s Test and Trace services."

Throughout, the outdoors has been seen as the safest place to be!

Stay safe all.

Our UK bushcraft courses are designed to rapidly increase both your confidence and ability as you master new skills and wilderness knowledge. Everything we teach is tried, tested and trusted in real wilderness.
There is no better place to learn wilderness bushcraft than on a large private estate in the Lake District National Park, which allows for immersive nature learning.



Wild Human’s Bushcraft Expeditions focus not only upon where we travel, but just as importantly upon HOW we travel. Each journey has been carefully researched and reconnoitred to create a balance between local culture, wilderness skills and personal challenge.

Far from the beaten track our unique expeditions are NOT guided tours, but self-sufficient wilderness trips, from remote snowshoe journeys to living on uninhabited desert islands.

A Wild Human expedition is challenging and adventurous, allowing for the 'flexible' nature of real wilderness trips where many of the variables, from weather to transport can not necessarily be relied upon. All of our itineraries are set, but have an in-built degree of flex to accommodate all eventualities. Every participant is covered by robust international insurance and all of our leaders have advanced expedition medical qualifications. You are in safe hands, but still need to take personal responsibility for yourself and the team, as all of our trips venture into deep wilderness, sometimes 100's of miles from the nearest medical facilities.



Our vision - we believe that we can all become better humans – calmer, more focused, skillful and stronger – simply by obeying a few simple principles… by re-adopting the species specific skills and movements that our minds and bodies have evolved to excel at, skills and movements that make us feel intuitively good about ourselves.
