Beginners’ Navigation Courses
We regularly run one- and two-day beginners’ navigation courses in the Yorkshire Dales. We do not schedule these in advance on specific dates, as we prefer to make each one bespoke for you and adapt them to cater for different levels of ability and experience.
Not only is map reading and navigation good fun, but it is the first skill to become familiar with if you want to enjoy walks in the hills and moors of the UK, or indeed on trails in various areas around the world. These beginners’ navigation courses are aimed at people who have never navigated before, or have just followed along in large groups, but who now want to take more control for themselves. As well as enjoying a pleasant day’s walking, you will be shown all the fundamental skills associated with walking in remote areas but on fairly well marked tracks and trails. (Ratio 1:8 max)
More advanced courses are also available for those who want to navigate in mountainous terrain and we also offer the National Navigation Award Scheme for those who want to gain a recognised qualification.
