What is the difference between bushcraft and survival?

Quite simply, bushcraft is survival skills which are  learnt and practiced so if in the unfortunate event you need to survive in the wild you will have knowledge and skills, applying them to your situation. 

Bushcraft has been increasing in popularity since it has been shown on tv with presenters like Bear Grylls and Ray Mears. Which is great to see so many people finding a interest in the outdoors through this outlet. 

We offer:
