Much of Britain was lucky enough this last weekend to have experienced a mini heatwave, the first of the year and a welcome change from the inclement weather of the previous months. The London Marathon is reported to have experienced the hottest temperatures in its history. In a country that simply doesn’t see enough sunshine, […]

    5 star review  Just back from the BEST weekend in a very very long time! The whole set up.. from booking, meet and greet and content delivered by instructors was excellent. Big thank you too Ryan, he was full of knowledge and helped when you needed it but also left you alone when he recognised that you was capable. I felt very reassured of my safety at all times.. I highly recommend going on one of these weekends, you will learn so much about yourself! I will be back again.

  • 5 star review  This course expresses the phrase "Expect the unexpected", absolutely blew me away. You can certainly expect to be educated. 100% worth it, would recommend this course and if you're on the fence or thinking about doing it, do it, best decision you'll make if this is a subject you're into. Thanks to all the instructors.

    5 star review  What a ride! Just back from our "Urban Survival" weekend and the memories will last for a lifetime. It was full on - but SO much fun. We learnt so many skills and tips that will help if we find ourselves caught up in anything from a terrorist attack to a tsunami. The instructors, all ex forces, seriously know their sh1t! - Ryan, Jay, Ryan, Shaun, Dickie and Jack (thank you so much, guys!) managed to get the balance right between making us feel comfortable and uncomfortable. Won't give anything away except to say - expect the unexpected. The urban survival weekend is not for moaners, those who expect to be pampered or for those who like things sanitised. However, if you're up for it, you have a positive "let's have a go" attitude, you're willing to move outside your comfort zone and you love adventure, you will LOVE every minute of this course. I will be boring my friends senseless with stories from our weekend from here 'til kingdom come.

  • 5 star review  I have just had the best weekend! After a trade in of an unwanted red letter day gift, my friend and I decided that instead of a boring flight over London we wanted to do something fun and outdoorsy. Wild Survivor is what popped up and I'm so glad it did. The staff definitely made the trip for me! Our 3 instructors were fun, chilled and knowledgeable and their mixture of skills, experience and personality made it super fun for everyone! We also had a great bunch of people from all walks of life which made the whole experience even better. In summery - This was an awesome mini adventure full of skill learning, group bonding and 24 hours of banter! I would recommend to anyone who likes fun and the outdoors. x

    5 star review  36 hours later and I'm still buzzing, with a Monday at work in between, that tells you how good the weekend is! The location is stunning, the instructors aren't, but they are superb at what they do and make the whole experience come together. If you listen to what they tell you, you'll come away a whole lot wiser but won't even realise how much you've taken in, it's that well done. Can't wait to learn from them again, definitely take the leap and sign up with these fellas as soon as you can. Thanks Ryan, J and Chris, it was awesome.

  • 5 star review  This was the most fun i have had in ages. The set up is perfect to get you in the survivor mood. Ryan , Ja and Chris are so good at what they do and the way they they teach it makes it fun and easy to pick up. My big fear going into this was it would be to strict and all the adventure would be taken out of the experience. That couldn't be further from the truth. You are given space to do your own thing but advice and support is always there . Nothing is to much trouble for them and any questions you have they have got the answers for. If you want to try this kind of thing this has got to be your first port of call. What a quality weekend. Thank you .

    5 star review  Had an amazing weekend, met some great people, learnt some really good skills, and was made very welcome by the staff. They where all very friendly & knowledgeable. The course had a very good flow with the ability to mold to needs and conditions, which also meant it wasn't to intense. Fully recommend to anyone. GET IT BOOKED... You will learn about the Wild & Yourself!!

    5 star review  A great experience, I already had a reasonable knowledge of the outdoors and wildcamping but there was still plenty to learn on the beginners course. Really enjoyed the experience- a must do for the budding outdoor survivor

  • 5 star review  I had an amazing experience on the Wild Survivor course. The instructors were very knowledgable and they were extremely supportive throughout the challenges that we were set. I learned a lot, including how to light a fire in a number of ways, how to build a shelter, how to utilise your surroundings, and so much more. If you are looking for a crash course in survival, this is the course for you. Thank you so much to Jamie, Dillon, Ryan and Chris for an unforgettable experience.
