About Us

Wild Human comprises a small team of highly respected bushcraft educators and specialist wilderness guides, who are both friendly and professional. They strive to create an environment where you can learn, grow, expand your horizons, and get the most from your time with us. Our bushcraft instructors and survival experts are all exceptionally experienced, hand picked, and known for their broad skill-base and particular expertise in their chosen subjects.

Wild Human has always been totally committed and dedicated to the development, refinement and re-discovery of wilderness skills and knowledge, often pioneering new skill-sets and experiences, to empower others to enjoy nature. It is not our goal to be the busiest or the biggest, but rather to continue to strive to bring genuine, authentic and transformational experiences, expeditions and courses that provide the opportunity for real skill acquisition and personal development.

Real adventure is defined best as a journey from which you may not come back alive, and certainly not as the same person.

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.
