On-path Navigation Skills for Hill walkers

Our Navigation Courses in North Wales and the Lake District are all about helping you develop the skills to get safely and efficiently from A to B, wherever your adventures may take you.

Description

If you think about learning to use a map and compass you probably think back to a stuffy school geography lesson, getting lost in the cloud on a hillside, or being confused by all the map symbols and contour lines.

Navigating using a map and compass is becoming a lost skill. It’s another victim of the tech revolution. Phone apps can be useful but all have some inherent problems for the navigator to overcome. Data connections, dangerous automatic route calculations, flat batteries and missing mapping information can all cause us to become lost or worse.

But it doesn’t need to be that way.

Our navigation courses are for all abilities and will help you understand how to use paper maps and compasses to find your own adventure. From exploring your local woodland paths to heading out into remote mountains.

Who is this for?

Our entry-level course is designed to help you get to grip with the basics of using a map to follow paths and tracks to get from A to B.

It’s ideal for you if you have a limited understanding of maps and you’ve never really used a compass to navigate, if you want a refresher of the basics, or if you are a bit nervous about your own ability.

If you already have some navigation experience you may find our Mountain navigation course more appropriate.
