I am a guide for the wilderness. I am Mark the WildernessGuide.

I provide tailor-made wilderness experiences and skills that span the spectrum of primitive adventure and living. I re-skill and re-wild people. I mentor, journey and share with those wishing to visit and live in the wildlands, the forests and the fells. I live a frontier life: I homestead, I whittle, I dance with and sit in the presence of the raw awe of nature. This is my quest for the sublime. I want to share this quest with you.


For those who don’t know me yet, if you speak those that do, they may tell you that I can be both a gruff, tough outdoorsman and also an eternally youthful and mischevious wood sprite… sometimes in the space of a single sentence!

Safety. Knowledge. Professionalism.
