This one day course is suitable for beginners, and would be particularly ideal for those taking on the Peak District Challenge 2014. You’ll learn using map and compass the basic skills you’ll need to find your way around the countryside, and leave with the confidence to walk further afield and over more remote terrain than ever before.

Visit the navigation training course page for more information, or you can book navigation training online here.
