Have you ever wondered how you would manage if you were trapped in the wilderness? Would you know how to light a Fire without matches? Or find Food and Water if you were miles from the nearest supermarket?

Dryad is proud to offer the Gower Castaway Experience. This course has been designed as an exciting introduction to the world of Bushcraft. bushcraft is the art of making yourself comfortable in a wilderness environment using a combination of traditional skills and modern survival equipment.

Dryad has joined forces with Gower coast adventures, who will take you on an exhilarating high speed tour of the South Gower coast in their 315 horsepower Jet Boat called “Sea Serpent“. You will then be abandoned at a remote location and with the help of Dryad Bushcraft’s experienced instructors you will learn how to light a fire, build a shelter, Identify edible plants and much much more.

This course is the perfect way to experience the Gower peninsular, Britain’s first designated area of outstanding natural beauty.
