Sometimes a day here and there just doesn't cut it when learning new skills. Instead, it might be easier to do an all intensive several days, combining all the elements in several big mountain days. What's better than learning to navigate whilst ticking off classic scrambles, summiting mountains and maybe even sleeping amongst the giants themselves!
All of my course can be combined to create a great package. Below are a few of the more popular ideas, but please feel free to contact me if you fancy some other options.

In just 3 days, you can go from having never used a map and compass before to navigating your way like a pro around the mountains of the UK. This all intensive course combines all my navigation courses into 3 consecutive days.
We will start by focusing on the key elements of navigation along footpaths and other public rights of way, before progressing to more demanding terrain and complex navigation towards the end of the course. This would be perfect for those with limited experience who want to make that running jump into hill walking and mountaineering.
By the end of this course, you will:
Be confident in planning your own walks in the hills and mountains of the UK
Be confident in navigating by yourself along footpaths and progressing away from marked paths
Start to develop an understanding of relocating yourself if lost
Be inspired to continue and progress with navigation in the hills and mountains.
On this course, we will cover the following:
