Navigation

Whatever kind of walking you do, having a basic understanding of how to use a map and a compass can give you a much stronger feeling of confidence when out on the fells where the weather is changeable and it can be easy to lose your way, even when following paths. We run basic navigation courses that take place out in the fells and are really fun introductions to learning how to navigate.

You can choose from our mixed group sessions, sessions for women only or family rambles to get your littler ones excited about walking in the fells safely.

Please note - Family Rambles has now finished for 2017 and will be back for the 2018 season.
