Well developed navigation and mountain skills are key to enjoying our challenging mountain environment in a safe, responsible and enjoyable manner.
Over 2 days, we can offer more than just your average navigation course. Having the skills and ability to deal with inclement weather, poor visibility, the need to relocate, navigate in the dark, move safely on steep ground and deal with an emergency high on the hill are skills that we believe every walker and climber should have. On our navigation days we look at all of these skills and more.
Our 2-day course covers the basic topics that are included in our 1-day course but in a lot more detail. It also introduces more advanced navigation and mountain skills which will leave you with a well developed toolkit to navigate safely in all kinds of conditions.
On a 2-day navigation course we would seek to cover the following areas from our 1-day course, plus the intermediate to advanced skills listed further down this page.
This is a 1-day course that is run in the Lake District. We run private courses so you can enjoy the benefits of being able to learn at your own pace and having the course tailor-made to your requirements and skill level.
