Bushcraft & Axe Skills // Niagara Escarpment

A rugged, authentic Canadian Experience

No actual standing trees are cut or damaged during this tour. We bring in logs and use custom made stands to hold them upright for the purposes of instructing axe & bushcraft skills

Axes weren’t meant to be thrown and if your great grandfather saw you throwing his precious tool of survival - he’d feed you to the wolves. Learn what an axe is really for and fell a tree yourself with the help of our pros - buck it, split it, earn your beard

With this tour you will hike into the woods - axes, saws and equipment in tow, and learn how to take a tree from standing to firewood while having a blast competing against your friends with some lumbersport inspired games. Nothing is more Canadian then a crisp day swinging an axe - learning what they are really for!
