Night Navigation & Low Visibility Navigation

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

We’ll be out on the hill for about 4 hours at night. We will cover many of the skills covered in the other 2 courses but with the added challenge of doing it in poor visibility

  • Taking and walking on bearings
  • Slope aspect
  • Contour interpretation
  • Micro navigation

We will also cover many of the skills in the Intro to Navigation course such as:

  • Understanding the map symbols, grid references and scales
  • Measuring distance and height gain on the map
  • Distance, time and pacing – how long it will take to walk to a point on the map
  • Using linear features as handrails to guide us
  • Using tick features – things we pass as we go to ‘tick off’ our progress
  • Compass basics – Setting the map, taking bearings

This course is ideal if you are looking to become a proficient navigator away from the trails through the year. You’ll have the skills to navigate in open country for a summer sunrise or walk into the evening during the shorter winter days.
