Bushcraft in the New Forest

Book Tickets Online


Insight Activities provide authentic woodland activities from a gorgeous private woodland in the New Forest - We specialise in Archery & Bushcraft skills. Family friendly, everybody welcome.... no previous experience required. Ages 8+ for this session!


Set in our beautiful secluded New Forest woodland, we are giving you the opportunity to learn many primitive survival skills on one of our Woodland Bushcraft Days. Each course varies depending on the groups interest. On the full day course, skills can include flint & steel, bow-drill and improvised fire-lighting. Knife skills, carving, shelter building, natural cordage and foraging for food as just a few examples.

Our half day options primarily focus on traditional fire-lighting by flint and steel and knife craft skills.

£40pp for a 2.5hr 1/2 day session. 

It is also possible to book an Axe Throwing or Archery & Bushcraft firelighting session in the New Forest – 2.5hr for £40pp.

Engage your inner survivalist, Ages 8+. Limited dates available.
