Full description

If you are anadventure lover and enjoy being in close contact with nature, this is the activity for you. A basic survival course in the woods of the Tuscan Apennines. A two-day experience to learn all those lost skills and techniques that have accompanied us along our evolutionary path.

Discover the world of survival together with CSEN-certified instructors, who will teach you how to orient yourself in the woods, build a shelter, light a fire and procure food and water like our ancestors.

A fun activity but also very useful in emergency situations, to be tackled with a true spirit of survival and that will make you find resources, inner and outer, that you didn't even think you had. Try it to believe!

What we will do

We will meet at 9.30 a.m. in Ponte a Moriano, a hamlet of Lucca. Time to form the group and get acquainted with the instructors and we will head for the survival school, in a splendid 19th-century farmhouse surrounded by woods, where the two-day course will be held.

Under the guidance of the instructors, we will carry out various activities, starting withorientation on the map and ending with the construction of the bivouac where we will spend the night. We will learn the different techniques of knot tying and tying, so that what we build can withstand different weather conditions. We will learn how to light a fire with tinder and make primitive tools from stones and small wood. For lunch we will have a picnic meal, and for dinner we will roast meat on a freshly lit fire.

One of the most interesting parts of the course will be how to drink water and procure food. We will learn to recognise edible plants and berries and build small traps. We will learn techniques for sending distress signals and assisting a companion in difficulty. Finally, we will be given hints on the psychology of survival, for managing anxiety and stress in emergency situations.

The course will end on the second day at around 17:00. We will return home with a baggage full of new skills learned in the wilderness, in the company of passionate people who will have passed on to us all their survival spirit!
