Inspired by the Fur Traders and Voyageurs of Canada’s wild rivers, and paired with wilderness living skills passed down by legendary survival instructor – Mors Kochanski.

Description:  Join our certified instructors for a week-long bushcraft and paddling skills course on the Athabasca River.  Combine essential river canoeing skills with traditional bushcraft skills to elevate your outdoor knowledge and experience to an exciting new level.  Experience Canada’s wilderness the way it was meant to be experienced – in a loaded canoe, hunting, fishing, and camping as we travel downriver learning and practicing timeless woodsman skills.

Back to Back course option: We have partnered with Dale and Colleen Kiselyk (Nature Alive) to be able to offer students a great opportunity to combine two courses back to back and save on travel costs. The Bushcraft River Expedition course is designed to run immediately after the Karamat 2017 Fall Wilderness Living Skills/Survival Course.
Past graduates of the Karamat winter or summer course are encouraged to join us on the river expedition as we will be utilizing many of the skills learned at Karamat.
