  • Breakfast Included
  • Gourmet Bushcraft Dinner

If you're not already named something suitably macho like Bear, Ray, or Les, you can be forgiven for thinking you'll never come across common crises like falling out of a plane into the wilderness. Whatever they call you, though, it turns out there is a way to put a survival stitch in the diary—and guarantee you make it out alive: this Escape with Canoe Cheshire.

Whether you know your way around a pen knife or you're a total beginner, take on a real outdoor adventure with a two-day bushcraft and canoeing experience—it's £129 for one person (up to a £280 value), or £234 for two (up to a £560 value). Either way, you'll find shelter in a self-made structure or—if all else fails—a tent, for one night sleeping in the great outdoors.

You and your fellow hunter-gatherers will practise your food preparation in the wild, then chow down on the goodness of dishes such as nettle soup, fresh fish, pheasant, or rabbit for dinner, before a breakfast of Staffordshire oatcakes with eggs and rustic bacon.

It's the activities during your stay that will really light a fire under you though—not least the bit where you, ahem, light a fire: after meeting by the riverbank, you'll work on your paddling skills as you canoe downstream, taking in the surrounding wildlife; next comes setting up camp, along with essential bushcraft skills like tool safety, natural cordage, and shelter building; come morning, you'll learn all about natural navigation and sustainable foraging, before clearing your camp—leaving no trace, natch—and following the river to the final destination.

This Escape has seven-day availability. Children over the age of 14 are allowed if accompanied by adult (one adult per child).

  • "This two day experience is ideal for anyone that enjoys being outdoors and would like to try something new."
