Course Information

Dartmoor survival course: Have you and your group got what it takes to survive three days in the unforgiving terrain of the Moors?

"I had an absolute ball on this course it was exactly what I was after. The staff were knowledgable and professional and approachable nothing was too hard. The course content and design was both achievable but testing and the opportunities to step outside your comfort zone was always there. I would do it again and would urge everyone thinking of having a crack to do so."

There’s a reason why the British Special Forces favour Dartmoor as a training ground for their elite recruits – as one of the UK’s most hostile environments, it can test the mettle of even the most intrepid soldier. Our Dartmoor survival course is a three-day survival experience training in the same natural arena that will challenge the boundaries of your strength, courage and wit. As they say in the military, "Survive to fight, don’t fight to survive”.

Dartmoor, South West
The unforgiving but famously beautiful Dartmoor National Park landscape can be harsh, and has difficult terrain including rivers, woodlands, steep ascents to the many tors, and undulating countryside, as well as its own micro-climate. It is used by Britain’s elite Royal Marine Commandos for training exercises, due to the demands of the environment in both winter and summer conditions.

These items will all help you to survive! Please note, all of the clothing and equipment that you bring must be appropriate to the environment and the time of year. This is just a guide and you may not require all the kit. Your instructors will let you know what to take out into the wilderness on arrival-any extra kit can be secured at base camp.

…and don't forget a bag full of positive attitude!

I found the course absolutely amazing. I was pushed to limits that I didn't know I could reach. The Instructors were both friendly and very helpful as well as supportive. I think It was a great opportunity to learn more about Survival and I also found that you make some great friends while on the course.
