This 1-day navigation course is unique. Not only will you learn the fundamentals of using a map and compass, you will also be introduced to natural navigation.


While hitchhiking alone to the other side of the world, I picked up signs in the environment such as the sun, the wind, the trees, plant life and even puddles. Utilising these signs is not only a lot of fun and very rewarding, it adds another dimension to your adventures. 

This course is run in the Peak District, the Yorkshire Dales and on Dartmoor. 


Topics include:

  • Route planning

  • Reading contour lines

  • Reading other features

  • Measuring distances

  • Grid references

  • Using a compass

  • Map types

  • Triangulating your position

  • Responding to errors

  • Emergencies

  • Using trees

  • Using wind direction

  • Using plant life

  • Using the sun and stars

  • Using puddles

Group sizes are currently limited to 6 people. The price per person is £99.99. A deposit of £20 is needed to secure your place and the full amount is due two weeks before the date booked. We will begin at 09:15 and be finished by 16:00.


All maps and compasses are provided free of charge. All you need to bring is sensible footwear, a waterproof jacket and a warm layer.
