Bespoke Navigation Course
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.
Our navigation courses are designed to give you the skills and confidence to get out and explore the hills alone or with friends and family without a guide. We offer navigation courses at Beginner, Intermediate or Advanced Level or your own bespoke map reading course designed just for you. All of our navigation courses are based in the beautiful surroundings of the Lake District and we always try to make sure you have a wonderful day out in the hills as well as learning how to read a map and use a compass.
We believe that good navigation always starts with good map work so this is what we start with and put a strong focus on throughout our courses. Ordnance Survey maps are probably the best maps in the world so it makes sense to be able to make use of all of the detail that is on them. The weather in the UK is very variable so if you want to be able to get out walking in the Lake District fells you need to know what to do when visibility is poor.
Learning how to navigate will dramatically improve all of your future experiences in the countryside whether you enjoy going on gentle walks through woodland or strenuous hikes to Britain’s highest mountains.
