More than Mountains have set up their navigation courses to enable individuals to develop sound navigation practice including planning routes.
Personalised Navigation Courses
We can tailor our own navigation courses to suit anyone and are happy to run courses lasting one to five days.
Let us know what you have done before and what you want to achieve and we will design a course just for you. If there is a particular skill you would like to learn or somewhere in the Lake District you have always wanted to navigate to then let us know and we will make sure it is part of your course.

Articles on Navigation
More than Navigation
Navigation and map reading are skills and therefore can be learned and practiced. Like most skills they are not easily acquired from books or websites but if you would like to do some reading before your course here are a few recommendations.
Books we recommend
Mountain Navigation by Peter Cliff
This book was first published in 1978 and does look a little dated but is still an excellent guide to navigation. It is only 57 pages long but it covers all aspects of navigation, is well written and easy to understand. If you would like a book purely about navigation then we suggest this one.
Hill Walking by Steve Long
This is the official handbook of the Mountain Leader scheme and covers everything you'll need to know about walking in the hills. It is more colourful and modern looking than the Peter Cliff book and covers a much wider range of topics including camping skills and weather. It is written with instructors in mind but is an excellent guide for anyone who wants to go out into the hills.
