Our experienced instructors will teach you how to build a fire using primitive methods, construct rudimentary tools, prepare a shelter, recognise edible plants and much more.

It will be a real return to the origins in the splendid landscape ofAlto Garda and the Sarca Valley.

What we will do

We will meet at 8.30 a.m . at the base camp in Arco (TN). Just enough time for introductions and a brief introductory briefing, and we will get straight into the heart of the course.

In addition to this, the instructors will give first aid hints, teach us how to orient ourselves with a compass and the signs of the environment, and explain how to prepare the perfect hiking backpack with everything we need to be ready in case of need.

The course will end around 4 p.m . with the handing out of certificates of participation.
