Bushcraft course

Bushcraft Course

 

A course in "Bushcraft", the art of living a simpler outdoor life where you learn to manage with less equipment. Norwegian Bushcraft takes safety seriously, so we will refresh your first aid knowledge during the course. We will train you in the safe use of tools such as knives, axes and saws. We will focus on awareness of fire hazards and you will gain experience in creating a safe campfire. During this course you will:


  • Make most of what you will need during the course, including creating your own shelter were you can stay overnight under controlled conditions. You will learn how to make ropes and other cordage from different natural plants, as well as making your own containers and other useful tools.


  • Learn how to make fire in different ways, including historical methods such as flint and steel, and the even older skill of creating fire from friction. During this course, we will try bowdrill, a method of creating fire by friction. You will create your own bowdrill set that you will use to make fire.


  • Prepare meals together over an open fire. We will look at different ways to prepare meat, fish and bread. We will also learn about local edible plants and have a taste. You will source water locally and learn how to make it safe to drink.


This course will cover a number of important bushcraft skills, including hygiene, toilets, knots, emergency bivouac, carving, natural navigation and plants that can be used as a substitute for medicines, are some other things that will spice up the course along the way. Each participant will receive the necessary materials such as a firesteel, mosquito net, booklets and more, as well as a certificate after completing the course. All meals are included.
