Navigation Courses

Navigation is an essential skill if you are to tread the hills with confidence, and finding your way in less than ideal conditions can be really fun and satisfying. Whether you want to learn the basics, gain more confidence, or learn more advanced techniques for poor visibility/night navigation, I can run a course to suit your needs.

Introduction to Navigation

Ideal for people new to the hills or who enjoy the walking but always let someone else do the navigating. Learn the strategies for planning a route and the skills to follow it.

Off The Beaten Track

This course is for those who want to learn some more advanced techniques for when there isn’t anything obvious to follow, or when the visibility isn’t so good. We will look more closely at contours, use of the compass and other techniques. May involve a night navigation exercise.
