Heligan Wild Week

Wild Week returns to Heligan and we invite you all to join us to discover your wild side and enjoy a week of fun outdoor adventure.*

*Grubby knees guaranteed!

Begin your journey in the Wild Tribe Yurt. 

Choose a tribe and become a frog, a butterfly, a fox or an owl. Join in the fun, paint your own face and make your tribal headdress before taking part in our wild activities.

Test your hunter gatherer skills, become your tribal animal and see whether you can take aim and strike your prey.

A giant outdoor assault course awaits adventurers (big and small) to test your animal instincts: can you fly like an owl through the trees? Leap like a frog? Scrabble through our fox’s den? And balance like a beautiful butterfly?

Feel the beat of your animal tribe!

Join in one of our musical workshops – help create a song and try out a unique Tribal call. At the end of each day join us round our campfire for a Wild Sing-along!

Wind down and chill out by our camp fire and enjoy toasting your own marshmallow.

Learn some simple bush craft skills; try your hand at fire striking and work together with your friends and family to make rope and create your very own tribal wrist band.

Head on down to the wildlife explorer’s area, use your senses to discover more about Heligan’s native Owls, Foxes, Butterflies and Frogs.

At the end of it all relax in one of our hammocks nestled under the trees and tune into the sounds of nature!

Heligan Wild Week will run from Saturday 25th May – until Sunday 2nd June, 10am-5pm.

All Heligan Wild Week activities are included within our normal garden admission charges.
