Paddling on the Missinaibi River as part of a Frontier Bushcraft wilderness expedition

Travel in Wild and Remote Natural Environments

One of Frontier Bushcraft’s aims is to facilitate the learning and application of wilderness skills in context – while travelling in wild or remote natural environments. Frontier Bushcraft’s range of Expeditions delivers precisely this.

The Frontier Expedition philosophy is straightforward and consistent. The major part of each Frontier Expedition involves making a real journey in wild country, while learning, applying and consolidating bushcraft skills relevant to the environment. You will be expertly guided, as part of a small group of like-minded people in a friendly atmosphere, with time being given to savour the landscape and wildlife around you.

Frontier Expeditions are not static courses but active trips. For you to get the most from your expedition you should be prepared to engage with nature and the local people while having respect for the environment and local customs. In return, you will gain practical skills and valuable real-world experiences that are empowering and liberating, along with memories that will stay with you for many years.

Frontier Bushcraft will always strive to provide high quality yet good value courses and expeditions. When we work with in-country partners to provide courses or expeditions, we will only work with those who pay their staff a fair wage, have high safety standards as well as, where relevant, providing equipment, accommodation and vehicles that are good quality. This sometimes makes our trips more expensive than they could otherwise be, but we are committed to maintaining high ethical and safety standards as well as the quality of your experience with us from start to finish.

Frontier Expeditions are for small groups, usually of up to only eight guests, or tailor-made for private groups.

A two-week voyage through the Canadian wilderness of northern Ontario, on a river which was one of the arterial trade routes of the canoe era.
