Bushcraft & Survival Courses This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is Opuntia-1024x740.jpg

Woodland Wilderness School is the first bushcraft / survival school in Southern Portugal. We teach outdoor skills in one of Europe’s most remote areas, the Baixo Alentejo. Courses are generally held in English, however individual or small group classes can also be taught in German or Portuguese.


Our schedule though modified and adapted for Europe is based on the teachings of Tom Brown Jr. This  implies the maybe most important characteristics of Woodland Wilderness School. We do not teach survival as a struggle against nature – man against the elements – but as learning to become part of nature again in order to survive. 

This is achieved through a deep understanding of nature, based on observation, skills and awareness, and finally leads to finding man’ s role in the big circle of life.
