Navigation Training Courses
Navigation Training in the Peak District, Snowdonia or Lake District
Learn to Navigate
We offer a selection of 1 day and 2 day navigation courses and a choice of Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced levels. Most courses take place in the Peak District or Lake District but can be based in other areas on request.
The Beginner Navigation Training course will provide you with a basic introduction and the skills to start walking safely using a map and compass. The Intermediate Navigation Training and Advanced Navigation Training courses enable you to learn more in-depth navigation and compass techniques, providing you with the skills to tackle more complex terrain and the difficulties of navigating in poor weather or in the dark. Whatever your needs, one of our navigation skills courses will be just the thing.
If you'd prefer a more personalized touch or 1-to-1 navigation coaching then we can put together your very own day booked as Private Guiding. Navigation training to help you prepare for the navigation element of the Mountain Leader Assessment can also be arranged as well as a night navigation course.

Much of the time will be spent on complex terrain navigating to smaller features and with longer and more complex legs and much more focus on contours. I tailor the exercises for each person based on your level of skill and those areas you'd like to work on perfecting. The course cost does not include accommodation.
