Wild Camping Kit List

Now is the time for Wild Camping and experiencing the joys of piecing together a multi-day adventure with overnight stays in secluded places. A trip that isn't reliant on a town, pub or established campsite. It could be a multi day backpacking walk through our mountains and fells or a single local overnight bivvy and #CatchNatureOffGuard

Wild camping, snowholing and bivvying all involve spending the night hours outdoors in remote places. Generally, it is not legal unless in Scotland or on Dartmoor. So, set up camp late and leave early staying well out of peoples' way whilst causing minimum disturbance.

Make camp, eat well and lie back to enjoy dusk till dawn resting your weary head hopefully under a star-filled sky.

Wild Camping Cookware fine dining and one pot wonders

An integrated stove cooking system is great for boiling water and preparing simple hot food. For more complex cooking a Kraku or Koro stove set up means you can get many pots on the go. A good breakfast with a mixture of cheese, dried fruits and meats, cup-a-soups, mixed nuts and porridge has kept us going on many camp adventures. Some of us also make up food in advance and then vacuum pack so it keeps fresh for days and can be just warmed through when you need it.
