Beginners Navigation Course

"On completion of this award, participants will be able to plan and follow simple walks in the countryside mainly on paths and tracks."

If you have done some fell walking but do not feel confident navigating or have never navigated at all, this day long beginners navigation course will give you plenty of practice and a great start.

We assume you have no prior navigation knowledge and so start with the basics. You will spend the whole day in the hills learning and practicing a variety of navigation skills, including: reading the map, map orientation and interpretation, compass use, following a bearing, navigation strategies and more. This will give you the knowledge and confidence to plan and navigate your own walks into the hills. The course is run in a relaxed style to maximize your learning and enjoyment and you will have plenty of opportunity to practice over the duration.

There are no pre-requirements for this course

Forthcoming Bronze Courses

Navigation Courses

Mobile Adventure use fully qualified Mountain Leaders to deliever all our navigation courses. These range from the bronze award covering basic navigational skills through to the gold award in which an individual has to show competence in all aspects of navigation.

Our courses are tailored to meet the abilities of each individual to enable them to gain the highest award possible.

Any of these courses are a great way to enjoy the stunning beauty of the Lake District, whilst learning some vital mountaineering skills, which will definitely enhance your future walking experiences.

Over the duration of the course we expect to climb some of the classic mountain peaks like Scafell, the Langdale Pikes and Helvellyn whilst also visiting some less well trodden paths and peaks.

A must for mountaineers, scramblers, aspirant mountain leaders and walking group leaders who wish to improve or learn from scratch.
