Camping Masterclass Videos

 How to camp sustainably with @veggievagabonds_ 

We joined Josh and Sarah, two self-confessed outdoor-loving, tree-hugging vegans who are on a mission to make the outdoors more ethical. They talked through their tips on how you can enjoy a sustainable camping trip that leaves no trace on the planet.


Camping on the River Spey with @gurl_on_the_hill

Scottish adventurer Lorna  joined us for a canoe descent of the River Spey, where she camped on some of the islands along the way. We had the opportunity to ask Lorna questions about her trip, from what essential kit she packs in her canoe to how she picks the best wild camping spots.

 Wildlife talk with @sussex_sara

Nature photographer and naturalist Sara will be talked about all things wildlife, with top tips on what to look out for in your own garden or from a bedroom window, as well as what to spot and how when you venture further afield.


Outdoor yoga with @abbilou__

Qualified yoga teacher Abbi will be delivered a garden yoga session suitable for all abilities, whether you’re an experienced yogi or a complete beginner. Abbi’s session will leave you feeling wonderfully rejuvenated and calm, and help you to connect to the nature around you at home.

What will you need? A yoga or exercise mat if you have one, or if you don’t, a camping roll mat or even a towel will do. Wear some comfy and stretchy clothing.

Please note that you participate in the yoga session at your own risk. Please only participate if you feel physically able to, and remember to go at your own pace.
