Advanced Navigation Contour Interpretation Workshop in Connemara

This higher level advanced navigation course uses contour only maps to refine your contour interpretation skills.

About the Contour Interpretation Workshop

Using specialist maps produced exclusively for Mountaintrails you will learn to navigate across open country using only the contour lines on the map.  All the other symbols and features will have been removed.

This workshop is held in the Maumturk mountains in Connemara, where the complex topography lends itself to this technique and is ideal for the requirements of this workshop.

The course is run at a maximum ratio of 1 instructor to 6 clients to ensure you will get the most benefit from the day.

To get the most out this workshop you should be comfortable with using a map and compass to navigate, and be able to take a compass bearing and walk accurately on the bearing.

This advanced navigation contour interpretation workshop is an ideal progression from our Improvers Navigation Course.
