1 Day Foraging and Cooking Course in Cumbria

Try something new during this canoeing, foraging and cooking course, with expert instructors in Cumbria.

Remove yourself from day-to-day cooking and set aside a day to complete this exclusive and - potentially life-saving - Foraging and Cooking Course in Cumbria. This unforgettable experience will soon see you obtain a new love for the outdoors!

This in-depth, 6 hour experience takes place in rural Cumbria. Once you have met your group for the day, you will each board a canoe and paddle over to a secluded survival island, where you’ll meet your instructors. Once you have been introduced, it’s into the woodland for a health and safety briefing, and to go over the day’s itinerary. From building traps, and learning how to safely filter water, to spoon whittling, and preparing your own rabbit stew, you and your group will cover a variety of outdoor techniques. The day will finish with a introduction to Plant Identification and an exciting bushtucker challenge!

This 1-Day Foraging and Cooking Course in Cumbria is the perfect gift for all nature-lovers and outdoor enthusiasts!
