Indigenous Bushman Course

 

 The Indigenous Bushman Course is designed for those who want to further their knowledge & for those with some prior experience of bushcraft. The course encompasses a wide range of fascinating skills and techniques, which will enthuse keen students. The skills taught on this course will be essential skills for survival here in Sweden’s northern forest region.

 

 

 The Indigenous Bushman Course will teach you four main priority principles such as, Fire, Shelter, Water, Food. Furthermore more time maybe spent on specific topics, going into more depth on subjects. Enough time will be given to complete the tasks, enabling you to work in a relaxed atmosphere.

The course will be conducted in a remote village of Ottsjö, in the north of Jämtland Sweden. In contrast to the UK, Sweden is a perfect environment with a real difference. Sweden’s pristine aboral forests have so much to offer. To illustrate Sweden is 78% covered in Forest, with the same latitude as Alaska. Due to this the climate and weather, is subsequently colder and more extreme. Thus giving you the real taste of wild untouched and untamed wilderness.

An unbeatable dog sledding adventure Despite unusually poor snow conditions in the area the team at Wild Spirit worked hard to ensure that our dog sledding experience could continue, proposing an alternative, beautiful route. The dogs were amazing, and the team welcoming, friendly and very helpful to our bunch of dog sledding beginners. It was an exhilarating adventure that has made our holiday in the Are area. Not to be missed.

Best Part of My Trip! This was the highlight of my trip to Sweden. Richard and his team showed the upmost professionalism and care.The dogs were lovely and ready to go! They take time to explain everything to you so if you have no prior experience, it'll be totally okay!Our safety was always first and learning how to use the sled was easy!What impressed me the most was the Richard's and Claire's fun personalities. Conversation was great and coming back to the Kennel and meeting the rest of the dogs was nice! We won't ever forget how they helped us when we ran into an emergency AFTER our visit. I know there's other dog sledding companies to chose from but you really must pick Wild Spirit for both their dogs and their humans!
