THE WILDERNESS PROJECT

At the Wilderness Project we provide amazing countryside experiences and highly respected training courses centred on our passion for the great outdoors and making it accessible to all.  From bushcraft to mountain navigation, country crafts to outdoor first aid, our highly experienced team will guide you on your wilderness journey.

Who do we work with?
  • The countryside should be for everyone and we’re proud to regularly work with people of all ages and backgrounds from: schools, special needs groups, charities, businesses, outdoor/adventure organisations and the general public.

Where do we work?
  • We are based in Rhayader in beautiful mid-Wales with a bushcraft camp set in a 200 acre site on the banks of the River Wye and access to the stunning Elan Valley.  We like to travel too and can be found running training courses and events all over the country.

The Wilderness Project is part of the Learn Outdoors organisation.  If you’d like to find out more about our work with young people and the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award please take a look at www.learn-outdoors.co.uk

“I attended an invaluable, well-structured, comprehensive, supportive and enjoyable Advanced Hill Skills course. This small-group course was tailored to meet my individual needs, namely to improve specific Mountain Leader skills prior to putting myself forward for assessment. After the course I was then able to pass my Mountain Leader Assessment with confidence.”
