Come on a Bushcraft Expedition with Harbour Challenge
Put your bushcraft skills into practice for real on one of our Advanced Bushcraft Courses. Combine the bushcraft experience with canoeing on an expedition in Poole harbour or exploring the Dorset’s famous Jurassic Coast by kayak.
Join us for a two-day bushcraft expedition exploring the wilder shores of Poole harbour. Foraging for food along the shoreline and stopping to bivouack overnight on the shores of the harbour. With almost 100 miles of shoreline – much of it remote and uninhabited Poole Harbour is the ideal place for capturing the backwoods spirit in Dorset.
Dorset’s Purbeck coastline provides miles of rocky cliffs and sheltered bays to explore by kayak. With world class wildlife sites in, on and above the water, the experience of kayaking along the Purbeck coast is truly unique. On the bushcraft expedition we will fish and forage for food along the shore and bivouack overnight on the beach next to a drift wood fire.
