Canoe Trail runs bushcraft events in our woodland and other fine locations, teaching a great blend of skills ranging from adventurous activities, through to traditional skills used by our forefathers.

Many of our bushcraft activities are focused on teaching adventure skills that are interesting and important to know. We draw upon Richard’s experience as a professional adventurer accomplishing human-powered expeditions around the world. We also work closely with Woodland Ways, the UK’s leading bushcraft company for more advanced techniques and specific sessions.
