Mountain Navigation Courses from £30

Basic Navigation

Pete’s Basic Navigation course, run over one day, is ideal for beginners to mountain navigation or those looking to build confidence with the basics. We will spend a day practising following large features like paths, walls and rivers. The course is very practical as the best way to learn to read a map is by doing it.
On the day we will cover:
- Orienting the map
- Locating your position by prominent features
- Route planning
- Map scale, symbols and features
- Understanding contours
- Taking and following bearings
- Pacing and timing


Advanced Navigation

Our Advanced Navigation course is also run over one day. It follows on naturally from the Basic Navigation course but this is not a prerequisite. The goal of this course is to help develop the skills needed to navigate confidently off paths and in poor visibility. The course is very practical as the best way to learn map reading is by doing it. We will spend a day practising navigation on pathless terrain.
On the day we will cover:
- Route planning
- Map types
- Contour interpretation
- Using a compass
- Taking and following bearings
- Pacing and timing
- Relocating your position
- Robust strategies
