Description

We offer informal natural navigation courses with our qualified instructors who can personally teach you the skills needed to navigate successfully using a compass and natural techniques using your watch or the stars.

This is the ideal option if you would like to further your skills and knowledge in the outdoors and learn how to operate safely and efficiently when out on the hills. This is not an accredited course, therefore is a more relaxed and gentle introduction to natural navigation. We will tailor these days to meet your needs out on the hill from understanding a map, and its different uses, to working on micro navigation and poor visibility navigation.

The methods of natural navigation we will use are:

Day time

  • A shadow stick.
  • The watch method.
  • Tree and moss growth.

Night time (optional and weather dependant)

  • The stars.
  • The moon.

1:1 tuition can also be offered but a minimum charge will apply, please contact us for more details.
