Description

Learn the skills you need to enjoy the freedom of the hills

The plan
Navigation skills form the foundation of all journeys into the wild and open the door to the freedom of being in nature. Learn how to use a map and compass and gain the confidence to navigate even in poor visibility so that you can enjoy the freedom of being in the hills. Learn the skills you need to explore and experience wild and beautiful places in safety and confidence.

The skills that will be taught during this course include:

  • Route planning

  • Interpreting contours and key symbols on the map

  • Navigating in poor or limited visibility

  • Use of the compass

  • Re-orientating yourself if you do get lost

  • Navigating and movement over steep ground

  • Weather and how the weather affects route planning

  • Emergency procedures

The Walking

What is included
We provide all camping equipment including tents, sleeping bags, mattresses, navigation equipment (maps and compasses), and outdoor gear including waterproof jackets and trousers and rucksacks.
