1-Day Navigation Course: Intermediate Level – Bespoke Course

On a bespoke course you can chose a date that suits you, bring along up to 9 friends, and we adapt the course to suit your needs.

Using a variety of tried and tested interactive workshops, you’ll learn how to use a map and compass alongside your friends, before we head out to try these skills in the real world.

We provide everything you need to get started, all you need to bring is enthusiasm (and maybe some sturdy shoes!)
