Survival course:

Duration: one or two days

A hands-on course where you will be called upon to find the right solution to survive. Together with Sacha you will learn the basics needed to orient yourself, communicate your location, hydrate safely, build makeshift shelter, and more. The course can be conducted in one or two days with possible overnight stay in the forest.

A certificate will be issued at the end of the course.

We will learn…

To observe our surroundings and interpret all the details we usually ignore to find the right direction.
Animal or human footprints, mosses, plants, and sounds that we do not usually notice will instead be our best allies to orient us in an environment that is hostile to us and lead us to a safe scenario.
We will learn how to resist and obtain vital resources, how to search for water, how to treat it and make it drinkable. We will learn how to warm up safely, find materials for bait, and fire starting systems with circumstance techniques.
Finally we will learn techniques for building emergency shelters using what nature gives us, and much more that you will discover during the activities.
Throughout the hike, the Guide will follow the group by teaching notions, answering your questions, and creating verisimilar scenarios where you will be called upon to find a solution to survive in the best way possible.
The various day(s) activities, routes and skills learned may vary depending on weather conditions, group preparedness and any seasonal bans. The guide reserves the right to plan activities at his or her discretion to ensure the safety of guests and the surrounding environment.
All activities will take place in previously designated rooms that are well connected to the main escape routes.
