Navigation Courses in the Lake District and Snowdonia 2019

Navigation errors are often the precursor of further problems when out on the hill. Do you carry a compass around with you all day but don't really know how to use it? Do you ever wander off the beaten track or would you be able to find your way to safety in horrible weather in unfamiliar country?

The art of navigation is not such a black art as you may think. Introductory courses start at the very beginning, a very good place to start. The Lake District and Snowdonia, with their varied and sometimes complex terrain are perfect places to learn how to wield your map and compass. On my navigation courses, the map is thoroughly introduced and then used, not just stuck in a rucksack pocket. The compass and its mysteries are then explored and all essential skills are practiced. Depending on the time of year and conditions, a night navigation exercise can be included within the course price. Night navigation is a really useful thing to be able to do, if you head out in Winter you can often be coming off the hill in the dark.

On my navigation courses maps and compasses are provided - don't go out and buy if you haven't got these items. I can also provide head torches for night navigation exercises.
