Overview

During this five day course, you'll develop from having little or no navigational experience to having a firm understanding of mountain navigation techniques. It's a great way to rapidly develop a well rounded knowledge of mountain navigation, or to consolidate and expand a basic grasp of traditional technique. You'll look at the traditional methods of navigation, using a map and compass before moving on to examine the benefits that modern technology can bring, using a handheld GPS system. All of this will, of course, be wrapped up with plenty of walking in the Snowdonia hills, putting everything into practice in real situations to further your understanding.
