If you know your way around a map and compass but are not sure if you could get off a hill safely if the hill fog came down.  If you want to be able to navigate accurately away from paths, and on featureless terrain, then this Improvers Navigation Course is for you.

In this course we will reprise some basic navigation techniques and cover the more advanced skills of route finding, including:

  • Devising a navigation strategy.
  • Pacing and timing over varying terrain.
  • Walking on a compass bearing to locate a feature.
  • Using navigation techniques including aiming off, tick features, catching features and attack points.
  • Interpret contour features, large and small, on the map and on the ground.
  • Relocation strategies.
  • Route planning, with regard for safety and terrain.

This course is run at a maximum ratio of 1:8 to ensure each client gets the most out of the day.
