Discover the basics of survival in the wild, and without use of modern elements with the survival school and awareness of nature The Primitives. You learn to do with what nature has to offer.
It is not a wilderness survival exercise, the training includes lectures and practical workshops. We teach ancient knowledge that man has used long before the compass, GPS and matches.
After a short theoretical presentation of the great families of fungi and collection methods and identification we go out into the forest to collect what Mother Nature offers us; we return later to the lodge where we will all clean, prepare and cook our harvest.
This training will give you the ability to correctly identify and collect yourself several kinds of mushrooms.
Fishing and hunting are permitted around the site.
Mostly we hunt black bear, moose, geese and several species of partridge. The Ecogîtes Matagami Lake are located in area 17 and are close to areas 16 and 22.
Check hunting seasons on the website of Ministry of Forestry, Wildlife and Park
We find several species of fish in the lake Matagami, including pike, sturgeon, whitefish, grouper, but the one that makes every fisherman mouth salivate is the walleye, that we can fish summer and winter that summer and winter.
