I applied for “Basic course” last September at the mountain of Učka. There I met another girl who also applied for the course. We have hit it off instantly and had lot of fun together. The course was supposed to be fairly easy, tailored for girls without or very little experience, but the weather was harsh, wet and cold during... More

An extraordinary experience of staying in nature without the comfort that we are used to. My son and I learned many new things: how to set on fire with wet wood, how to filter the muddy water, how to make a shelter for the night, how to make and bake bread without dishes and so on.

The course was refreshingly genuine for what it offered; if you're after a course that teaches practical skills for surviving in the wild with personal experiences of some of the conditions you will encounter then it comes highly recommended. I took the extended, three day, Basic Survival Course and found it challenging but worth the effort; with a hands on... More

As a Prepper, i highly recommend this course and this is first move that every prepper need to do. "First learn skill, then collect gear". I pushed my boundaries. Thanks Boris!

..went on a 2 day basic survival course and I have only words of praise for the course and instructor! We weren't really sure what to expect, but what we got was an amazing experience - you really get to connect with the nature, learn some extremely useful skills and have fun along the way in a gorgeous environment!

This was by far the most amazing experience we've had on holidays. We went on a 1 day family survival course with Boris and Robbie. Our 8 year old son was with us and Boris tailored a program to meet our needs but also challenged us. Boris taught us survival skills in the middle of beautiful Istria. You become completely...
