Why Choose Us

What do we do?

Established in 1999, WildWise deliver an exciting, diverse programme of courses, camps and events for adults, children and families to inspire and inform about the natural world. WildWise are specialists, creating exceptional opportunities in bushcraft, nature awareness and outdoor experiences for the general public, educational organisations, corporate and private client groups. WildWise's nationally acclaimed courses and events for children and adults have been seen on BBC's Blue Peter, Heaven & Earth, Truth About Food, Wild n' Deadly and ITV's Country Lives.

Why do we do it?

Our vision back in 1999 was to enable deeper nature connection for everyone, to address the chronic nature-deficit-disorder that was and is, all-pervasive. With a strong conviction that nature was a vital ingredient as part of healthy living, and that nature itself needed more ambassadors, we set up an ambitious events programme to encourage everyone to spend some meaningful time outdoors developing this nature connection.

Recent research has confirmed that a separation from the natural world leads to a diminished existence. Case-studies prove that restoring this connection leads to immediate and beneficial results, on all levels, including mind, body and spirit.

The bottom line is – people flourish in connection to nature. You only have to glance at WildWise’s testimonials to understand the value of this connection.

We see it all the time. We want you to.

Where do we do it?

We are fortunate to live and work in beautiful, wild Devon. Our events take place in some gorgeous locations on Dartmoor, near Exeter, in the Dart river valley near Totnes, and on the spectacular south Devon coast, near Kingsbridge. It is our great pleasure to share our favourite wild places with you, and we are blessed to have access to some delightful private and exclusive settings.
