Survival Training UK as seen on Channel 5 and a regular on BBC Radio Newcastle is not just about learning survival skills, so you can deal with any given situation, it is also about learning to live with nature, understand yourself, your environment, history, and heritage whilst forging bonds and having an enormous amount of fun.

(Our courses are based in rural Northumberland and Kielder Water side Park, Northumberland.)

We run an array of courses including Day and Overnight survival courses covering all the essential ingredients to make you a survivor. We also run The Kielder Expedition which is a fantastic way to experience the northern wilderness, history, heritage and wildlife in all its glory.

The Slaley Forest Expedition is considered to be one of the best outdoor adventure courses in the UK. It covers all aspects of survival skills, team challenges and adventure activities including archery, clay pigeon shooting, raft building.

The Bush Craft Bakery is another course we run. This course shows you how to handle, prepare, cook and consume a variety of wild game and wild flora. This course also teaches you how to effectively build outdoor cookers, such as bush ovens, smoke houses and a variety of other methods for cooking and eating wild outdoors.

All our courses are ‘hands on’ and practical, that way you get the knowledge and the experience.
