Mountain and River Activities Limited, deliver an exciting, diverse programme of courses, events, and camps for adults, children, and families to inspire and inform you about the natural world. We create exceptional opportunities in bushcraft and survival, nature awareness and outdoor education for the general public, environmental organisations, events, and team building for corporate, and private client groups. Our bushcraft courses are designed around a hands-on and practical approach, skills development, recreational learning and environmental appreciation, teaching not by long winded lectures, but by“ doing and living” with the skills. We believe that our approach enables each student to learn more quickly, thoroughly and ensures that they have the abilities to meet the challenges, opportunities, and goals of the training given, the end result is more than a collection of skills and knowledge but an entirely different view of our natural environment and resources.
