Welcome to Original Outdoors

Original Outdoors is an established North Wales outdoor training, events and activity business. We work in the mountains and forests of North Wales and Snowdonia, and also operate in locations across the UK with our team of experienced, enthusiastic and professional outdoor instructors.

Our range of training courses cover outdoor skills from navigation, foraging, bushcraft, survival skills and tracking courses to guided walks, charity events, team building and professional outdoor services.

The courses and activities we run are mostly based in North Wales but we can offer our services for events across the U.K., as well as bespoke courses for groups, individuals or organisations.


“The depth of knowledge possessed by Original Outdoor instructors is impressive… a wealth of knowledge and experience gained from spending time in the outdoors.”
