Welcome to Farafoot Bushcraft & Survival

Farafoot is a Bushcraft and Survival Skills company started in 2012. We make it our business to offer novel, interesting and exciting perspectives on being adventurous 'outdoors'. Connection with nature is crucial for our well-being, and this can be challenging to us given the ways we live today. This is the ethic that guides Farafoot. What we do, though, is no ordinary 'walk in the woods'. If you are looking for inspiration, a physical challenge and don't mind getting your hands dirty then we should be able to help!

About Farafoot Bushcraft

Farafoot Bushcraft guides you through how vastly important fire is outdoors and how to light fires and what kind of fires suit which situations. The types of shelters that are suitable for different situations and that sometimes simpliest is best. Foraging for food that goes beyond just collecting leaves, but also involves hunting and the preparation of meat and other foods that taste fantastic and will provide you with much more than simply keeping yourself alive. Sourcing water that is safe to drink and tastes better than anything that comes out of a tap. Looking after yourself and generally keeping yourself sparkling clean in camp.
