DESCRIPTION

Come face nature during this 4-day hard-and-last survival course in the heart of the Périgord Noir in Sarlat (24). Do you know the phrase "with my dick and my knife"? If so, you will immediately understand the specifics of this internship. Indeed, according to the legendary expression "with my cock and my knife" symbolizing the ability to achieve things with very few means, you will leave, as the expression indicates with only a tool: a knife! You will then have to imagine how to manage with this tool to survive in a hostile environment. Make an emergency shelter, set traps, purify water, identify edible plants, start a fire without a lighter, find your way around with the sun... you will learn all the techniques necessary to survive alone in the forest.
During these 4 days, you will be supervised by a survival expert. He will pass on all his knowledge to you so that you can put it into practice immediately. Ready to try the adventure?
