Demanding course (3 days)

It is intended for everyone who wants to experience an authentic experience of survival in nature.

In three days, you will gain a lot of knowledge and master the basics of survival in nature, and this is just enough time to really disconnect and feel life in the wild. The days are full of activities, various forestry skills are presented and learned in detail. On the course, you will face some factors such as sleeping outdoors in the forest, the presence of wild animals, dealing with morale swings due to lower calorie intake.

The demanding course is suitable for adults. General psycho-physical fitness is required.
