2011 course dates

This is our first Blogg posting and so we thought that we would announce our new dates for 2011, which can be seen here. We shall also be announcing some new and unique courses for 2011, so please keep checking our website.
There has been a great deal of interest in our Arctic Bushcraft Sami course in February 2011. This is a course like no other available and includes your specialist equipment in the price, making it very cost effective. The course will be run by our head instructor and also Swedish Sami reindeer herders, together they make a highly experienced and professional team.
If you're concerned that this is a 'hardcore survival course' then don't worry as each day you have the choice of sleeping in a natural shelter, lean-too, light-weight teepee or a luxury cabin with proper beds and a warm wood burning stove, also on site is a sauna, dining area and toilets.
