navigation course on dartmoor

Join me on an intro to navigation course on Dartmoor or another hill or mountain region in the UK! Scrolling your eyes across a map for the first time is like learning to reading all over again. All of those lines, symbols and colours are confusing. But with a little bit of tuition, you will be able to pick up a map and navigate your way along footpaths and enjoy the beauty the hills and mountains have to offer.


1 Day

Dartmoor/Snowdonia/The Lakes


* Price indicated is for public course dates. For private/bespoke/1:1 bookings, prices start FROM £170 per day. Get in touch to enquire.

Do you want to start to explore the outdoors in confidence and discover new areas, or maybe you are starting to discover Wainwright walks. Our INTRO TO NAVIGATION course is perfect for those who have never picked up a map before and want to learn the basic skills to navigate along footpaths. 

Our courses are centered mainly on Dartmoor and the hills of the South West, but we do run navigation courses in Snowdonia and the Lake District throughout the year too! Check our course dates by clicking SEE DATES above.


However, if you can navigate on Dartmoor, you can pretty much navigate anywhere!

We will cover the following skills on this course:

  • Conventional Symbols

  • Maps scales and the grid system

  • Orientating the map to the ground

  • Identifying and using handrails

  • Parts of a compass

  • Contours and large features

  • Measuring Distances
