Hillwalking Workshop

Hillwalking Workshop


You will spend two-days in the mountains learning in a fun, relaxed and enjoyable group atmosphere, with one of our instructors with you every step. We’ll teach you everything you need to know to get started hillwalking and share plenty of tips to make your adventures more enjoyable.

After this workshop you will have the skills to confidently plan, walk and enjoy your own mountain adventures.

The workshop will cover three main areas:

- Get to grips with your map and compass
- Navigate and follow routes with ease
- Deal with navigational errors and get back on track
- Planning routes and following guide books
- Strategies and tips to make your walks more enjoyable
- Learn about access land, conservation and the environment
- Check and interpret a mountain weather forecast
- Ensure you are equipped and prepared for a day in the mountains
- Learn how to deal with emergencies and what to do if things go wrong

Is this for me?

Aimed at beginners we will teach you all the skills needed to enjoy hillwalking. However, a good level of fitness is required as you will spend two full days in the mountains.
