AT HOME IN THE WILDERNESS

I want a challenge

ABOUT US

Our team of instructors has many years of experience with guiding people in the wilderness and surviving in extreme conditions. We started our activity as a hobby which later turned into a passion. We started reading more books, spent a lot of time in the forest and tested ourselves in each time more extreme environments. We would like to show the beauty and power of nature also to others, therefore we organize public presentations about wild food and surviving in nature and organize survival courses in the wilderness.

WHAT OTHER PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT US

I attended the basic 2-day course with my 7-year-old son and a friend. The experience was great! We received a lot of knowledge and put it into practice. The course was just as challenging and in the evening the boys prepared us dinner so we didn’t go to bed hungry. They also did a wonderful job of adapting the programme and the difficulty for the little ones, without depriving the adults. We both have fond memories of the course and are looking forward to the next more challenging one. We would recommend taking courses from this great team!

Ram Cunta

I took a challenging course and I have to say it is quite challenging because when you are short of food you are fighting a battle with yourself because you lack the motivation. However, it is excellently delivered by the instructors, who, despite their young age, have a wealth of knowledge and this knowledge is backed up by concrete experience. I would recommend it to anyone, even if they have no interest in outdoor survival, as it is a great opportunity to learn about yourself and your abilities. I think the price is unbeatable, considering what you get.

Jošt Kromar

The challenging course was a great experience, as it managed to combine “classroom” knowledge and practice.
We took away both new knowledge and the experience of surviving in the forests of Kočevje, as the instructors managed to strike a balance between a realistic scenario and our ability to learn. For me, the most important experience was the lack of food, because only this brings one closer to the real situation of energy depletion, which is often underestimated. I would also like to praise the instructors because they were dedicated to each and every one of us, and they were also willing to learn with us.
