Two Days Navigation for Hill Walkers
The first day is designed to help all hill walkers master the skills needed to navigate around the mountains. Time will be spent learning how to read maps with confidence as well as how to use a compass and GPS as navigation tools. We will also look at a number of navigation techniques to help get you from A to B without getting lost.
The second day will be spent practising and refining the skills of the first day whilst spending time in the mountains.
This short course can be booked at any time through Eden Outdoor Adventures, so if you are keen to upgrade your navigation skills and have some particular fells you would like to ascend in the Eden Valley, Ullswater, Keswick area or anywhere in the Lake District or North Pennines then contact us for a great few days out!
