"We know, trust and love Josh, Cormac and Emily. The adventures are so inspiring, everything is run and sourced ethically and responsibly. So much can be gained from these adventures in the wild... if you're thinking about running a school trip with The Living Project I'd say just do it. You won't find a better provider."

'live WILD'
AN EXPEDITION IN THE KNOYDART PENINSULA, SCOTLAND
"the UK's LAST REMAINING WILDERNESS"

Live wild

Running between May to September

Duration: 7 to 10 days (depending on the team, needs, objectives)

Choose from: A 'basecamp model' or a journey on foot (covering 5-15k per day)

Beginning with an overnight train from London – Fort William (via Edinburgh) we’ll then be based in the stunning and remote Knoydart Peninsula, Scotland. Also known as the UK’s last true wilderness. 

This programme can also be delivered as a John Muir Expedition.

 

On this expedition students learn self-sufficiency and how to work as a team to move through a stunning remote environment.

'THRIVE IN THE WILD'
DARTMOOR

Running between April to October

Duration: 7 to 10 days (depending on the team, needs, objectives)

An entirely unique experience in one of the wildest places in the UK. Beginning with a combination of environmental volunteering, living in the woods and eating fire-cooked food, this is an excellent opportunity for students to develop a sense of self-reliance and connection with a wild life.

 

From the woods we embark on a varied cross-country journey; by foot, steam train and canoe, enabling students to truly connect with the variety of environments in the UK. The whole experience is carried out using public transport and only eating local, seasonal produce, providing a genuinely sustainable experience, contributing to awareness of for students within this space while supporting the environment.

'a WILD life'
A wild experience in the magical forests & lakes of sweden

Running between May to September

Duration: 7 to 10 days (depending on the team, needs, objectives)

 

After catching the train from Stockholm to Gnesta we immerse ourselves in the Wild, stripping back to the bare essentials to spend three days learning to live in the environment around us.

We’ll build our own shelters, learn to forage, cook all our healthy, wholesome meals on the fire and have some fun in the surrounding lakes. We’ll learn native walking, observe the wildlife and prepare ourselves for a wilderness journey.

Part two of 'A Wild Life' sees us head out on an adventure into the wild. Using all the skills we’ve learned through the first three days we’ll find food on route, make our own temporary shelters, work as a team with the environment around us, and we’ll finish with a canoe journey along the lake that enables us to look back on the land we’ve become part of.
