When it comes to bushcrafting, Spain is a great place to visit. There are plenty of forests and parks that are perfect for exploring, and you will find a wide variety of wildlife there as well. Make sure to bring a good knife with you, as you will likely need it for cutting through the undergrowth. Spain has the perfect climate for you not to shiver at night, so there’s no need to pack a minus-degree sleeping bag.

Norway is a great place to go bushcrafting if you’re looking for a challenge. The landscapes here are rugged and unforgiving, but they offer plenty of opportunities for exploration. Make sure to bring a good knife and a map, as you will likely need both of them in Norway. Norway is a very safe country and some might even call it beginner-friendly. The most dangerous animals you will encounter are mooses and an occasional bear that you for sure will frighten just by making noises while moving around the forest. Norway is also exceptional for fishing and it’s an easy terrain to get your own food.
