Canoe Bushcraft Style!
Bushcraft Adventure on the River Wye!
We have undertaken this trip several times over the years just for our own pleasure. Occasionally, friends join us and just loved the experience so much we thought we should offer it as a activity package for all to enjoy
A typical Bushcraft Canoe program?
We like you to arrive on the first evening with time learn to put up a bivy shelter, light a fire and other useful skills in the comfort of our site. Once you are settled, for remainder of the evening you are welcome to cook and relax around the fire or go to in to Hay on Wye.
After a night to get used to sleeping in your bivy you will rise to cook on the fire and get our equipment packed into barrels ready to set out for our overnight trip. Once ready we set off down the river relaxing and enjoying the environment and depending on the time of year, see what useful things we can find by the river
once we get to our riverside camp you will have to put up your bivy, light your fire, prepare food and source drinking water to get you through the night. Don't worry we will be on hand to ensure you can get your fire lit, shelter constructed, don't go hungry or die of thirst!
After an amazing nights sleep you will wake listening to the lapping of the water and the wildlife around you. We will rekindle the fire and cook a tasty breakfast before striking camp and setting off on the final part of our trip.
When we reach the end of our trip you will feel like you have been away for days not just a night. You will then be brought back to civilisation to our site to clean yourselves, hand in equipment and a drink and snack before departing with great memories!
