Bushcraft Scout Course – Lakes and Rivers – Montenegro

Bushcraft is a way of life and in Montenegro that way of life is a little bit slower. Learn key skills from great trainers that love what they do. The skills you will learn in the Scout Course include: safety and basic camp craft; how to use a bushcraft knife; making potable water in nature; basic orientation skills; fire lighting methods; shelter building; and wild cooking. Along the way there will be so much to learn in nature including basic foraging in the region.

Not only will you learn key skills, you will also have an amazing experience with nationals that love nature and living well outside of the concrete jungle. During your Lake Scout Course, you will explore the surrounding part of Skadar Lake and see an ancient monastery.

While this is great training for wild-camping enthusiasts or novices that want to learn, you can go as spartan as you like–or not. You need to bring a sleeping bag and knife. If you want to bring a tent or other gear for peace of mind, that is OK. The bushcraft team wants you to be comfortable and have a great experience. They always have a great time when they are in nature and want to share their passion for the great outdoors. This course is as much about living well as it is about surviving.

  1. Bushcraft Montenegro.

    Meeting Brit and Astrid was such a blessing during our backpacking trip through the Balkans. Their advise was always spot on and they recommended such amazing places to go. One of those things they recommended was Bushcraft Montenegro. We learned, enjoyed and made close relationships with our hosts Kristijan and Darko . From building our shelter, to fishing and touring Skadar lake, foraging for mussels and learning new cooking techniques…we had a blast. Life long friendships are built in Montenegro! So happy to have had meanderbug hook us up with this!
