This innovative guide training course is an essential part of the vision of WeWilder and EWES for the Bison Hillock in the Țarcu Mountains, the second bison rewilding site in Romania. Over the past decade, WWF Romania, Rewilding Europe and the local community of Armeniș, have been working together to create a stable free-roaming population of European bison in this area which forms one of the last remaining wilderness strongholds in Europe.
We invite you to partake in its future by participating in this unique course, sharing your knowledge and experience with others, while getting certified as a professional wilderness guide. This will provide you with a firm foundation to join and support the nature guiding industry in Europe. It is also a unique chance to gain first-hand experience in community engagement and ethical wilderness guiding in an iconic rewilding area in Europe from the hands of some of Europe’s top Wilderness Instructors.
By combining the necessary technical skills necessary in the wilderness, with the soft skills needed to create memorable experiences for guests – this course offers you insights and training in wilderness expedition, survival practices, wildlife observation, interpretative guiding and hospitality, while also focusing on personal development and (re)connection with nature.
After successfully completing this course you will receive an official certification of the European Wilderness Education School (EWES) and are well on your way for the Wilderness Guide Certification Level 1 as certified by the Wilderness Guides Association (WGA).
