Advanced Navigation Training

Advanced Navigation Training

Navigating complex terrain


For this course we operate a maximum 1:4 client ratio to ensure you have the best possible learning experience in some of the most complex mountain areas in the Lake District.
This course is an ideal continuation for those who already have reasonable navigation skills.
You'll spend 2 days in the outdoors learning more advanced techniques and refining those you already have. 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'll tailor the exercises for each person based on their level of skill and those areas you'd like to work on perfecting. The course cost quoted does not include accommodation which I can arrange as required.
