SKILLS OF THE BACKCOUNTRY
Vital skills for future careers and adventures
We focus on two parts in our teaching. The first consist of the essential wilderness skills that are vital to actually being able live and work in the backcountry. Navigating, bushcrafting, finding suitable campsites, survival situations are only a few of the skills that we teach on our expeditions.
The second part consists of the many technical tasks that future scientists and field personnel needs to be comfortable in performing, sometimes in very harsh conditions. With us you will learn setting up areas for wildlife monitoring, different monitoring techniques, handling field equipment and much more.
Our programs take place in some of the wildest, most untouched areas of Europe. This has a dual purpose, the first being that it is extremely rewarding and spectacular to just be in such areas. The second purpose is that after an expedition into such a place, most things surrounding outdoor life will seem easy to our participants.
