We spent 2.5 days and 2 nights with Boris on an advanced survival course on the beautiful Istrian coast. We gained many new skills including knowledge of fires, shelters, water safety, first aid, foraging for food and water and map-reading amongst many others. Boris is extremely knowledgable and excellent company. The weekend was hard-work, intense, but exhilarating and hugely enjoyable.... More

I signed up to go head off with Boris and Drazen along with my partner Chris. We met up with the guys in Pula and headed off to our destination for 2 days. We were thrown straight into survival mode immediately with some navigation exercises. We then went to a beautiful setting on a little cove somewhere in Istria with... More

I applied for “Basic course” last September at the mountain of Učka. There I met another girl who also applied for the course. We have hit it off instantly and had lot of fun together. The course was supposed to be fairly easy, tailored for girls without or very little experience, but the weather was harsh, wet and cold during... More

I live in an urban jungle, NYC. Particularly at rush hour I find myself day dreaming of running away to an desert island. Extreme survive made my long wished fantasy reality. We swam to 3 islands and stopped on each. The first island was a camp, second was populated with lots of seagulls and on the third one was no... More

An extraordinary experience of staying in nature without the comfort that we are used to. My son and I learned many new things: how to set on fire with wet wood, how to filter the muddy water, how to make a shelter for the night, how to make and bake bread without dishes and so on. The course leader Boris... More

The course was refreshingly genuine for what it offered; if you're after a course that teaches practical skills for surviving in the wild with personal experiences of some of the conditions you will encounter then it comes highly recommended. I took the extended, three day, Basic Survival Course and found it challenging but worth the effort; with a hands on... More
