Come to escape from our modern world of conveniences and get a glimpse of how we could survive in our natural world. This increasingly popular activity can be enjoyed by all ages (under 8 year olds must be with an adult).

Survival Skills in Cornwall with Lizard Adventure can provide a great bonding opportunity for your family or an ideal team building exercise for your company. Every Survival Skills session can be tailored to meet your needs and experience. Locations are on the Lizard peninsula. We also offer sessions to guests at Clowance Estate during school holidays.

Lizard Adventure Survival Skills

We have several secret spots around the Lizard for our survival skills in the woods. The exact location will be confirmed after booking. Imagine the sense of achievement when you light fires without matches; build a shelter and forage in the hedgerows. You can even learn how to skin and gut a rabbit (optional) before you throw it all in a pot over the fire.

A recent development is our Survival Skills on the Beach at Polurrian Bay Hotel. Get creative and use natural resources to craft and carve. Learn how to light fires without matches; go on a scavenger hunt; forage for edible food or make mini rafts for rock pools.
