Survival Tourism, a Fashionable Adventure

post by : Anthony Vollenweider

Would you go out into the wild with the strict minimum for a couple of days or an entire week? Hunting and gathering your own food and water while managing to find and build yourself a shelter? This is the new trend called “Wilderness Survival” which is spreading around the word thank to TV shows like “Koh-Lonta” or “Wild” which often features celebrities like Mike Horn or former president Barack Obama.  The fact to reconnect with our primary instinct and the wilderness, leave the comfort of our every-day life and challenge our limits is what motivates the 8000 people who attended the first European meeting of Survivalism in Paris in 2018.
