Two businesses in the foothill of Snowdonia are joining forces to provide what they describe as “the ultimate antidote to the stresses of modern life”. Graig Wen at Arthog and Firefox Bushcraft from Bontddu, both near Dolgellau, are inviting people to join them for a Wild Wednesday, a bushcraft event which will be held every Wednesday from April 20 to September. This is a great day out for those who enjoy activity holidays in Wales.

Leading the back to nature course will be Heath Dawson from Firefox Bushcraft, who has appeared on a recent Visit Wales television advert.

“It's a great chance to get together and learn skills from fire-making to foraging and natural folklore,” said Sarah Heyworth from Graig Wen. “Heath creates activities to suit families or those looking to expand their bushcraft skills.”

Heath invites people to join him for “wood smoke, sea air, birdsong, a crackling campfire, woodland teas and wild food as we learn the skills, lore and secrets of the expedition traveller, the naturalist, the pioneer, the backwoodsman and of our ancestors. Our bushcraft events help participants to develop a sense of wellbeing, self reliance and kinship with nature. It’s the ultimate antidote to the stresses of modern life.” And the Welsh countryside is the perfect location for it.

Firefox Bushcraft – www. - also tailors sessions to suit groups, from a Bushcraft Olympics afternoon to overnight sleep outs in the trees. Half day bushcraft sessions at Graig Wen cost from £20 per adult and £10 for children. To book call Tel: 01341 250482 or e-mail or visit
