Former pastry chef, Guido Camia, is now making a living offering Neanderthal survival courses in the Italian Alps…

Whether you want to get ‘off-grid’ and escape the rat race, or just want an excuse to travel to Italy and learn how to live the simple life, this is for you.

The 37-year-old former pastry chef will teach you how to fish from streams, make clothes from animal skins, and climb rocks, amongst a range of other survival skills.

And you even get a certificate. According to Camia, his weekend courses are endorsed by Italy’s International Survival Federation (FISSS).

You can take part in one of Camia’s courses for between 80-100 euros (R1 300 to R1 700) per person per night.
