Paul Kirtley - Frontier Bushcraft

Paul Kirtley has been teaching bushcraft professionally since 2003. He is passionate about the natural world and wilderness travel.

Paul owns and runs Frontier Bushcraft, a highly acclaimed wilderness bushcraft school, offering bushcraft courses and wilderness expeditions.

Even though he is an instructor, Paul continues to be a student of bushcraft and of nature. He says “There’s always more to learn; it’s massively humbling how little one person really knows about the natural world”.

Paul puts strong emphasis on real-world application of bushcraft skills and this has been cemented by travels in Europe, North America, Africa, Australia and Asia.

As well as having his own adventures, Paul divides his time between teaching bushcraft, leading expeditions, and writing a popular and well-respected bushcraft blog.
