Full description

A rallying call for all adventure lovers and those who will not stop in the face of any difficulty. With this prehistoric survival course, the discipline of survival sports reaches an extreme and super-adventurous level!

Two days completely immersed in nature, detached from the modern world and without any comforts. You will have to sharpen your wits and get by with what the environment provides and with the help of CSEN survival-certified expert instructors.

The woods of the Lucchesia will welcome you for an unparalleled experience that will test your adaptability and teach you many useful techniques in emergency situations.

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 survival course will take place.

During the two-day activity, we will not be able to avail ourselves of any comforts and will only use the oldest and most rudimentary techniques. It will be a real return to the origins!

The instructors will teach us how to light a fire with a bow or pyrite, how to work flint, obsidian and bone to make primitive tools, how to make ropes from plant or animal fibres to be used to build the bivouac where we will spend the night.

We will learn how to recognise edible plants, how to obtain and purify water, and how to properly preserve meat, which we will then roast over a fire. We will make primitive hunting weapons, such as choppers and knives, and try to orient ourselves by relying only on the sun, moon and stars.

Who it is aimed at

This activity is at an intermediate level. No special physical ability is required, but a lot of adaptability. Anyone in good health, aged 8 years and above, can participate.
