Lake District Navigation

Mountain Navigation

Being able to read a map and find your way around the hills is an essential skill for all mountain users. To have the knowledge and confidence that you can navigate your way successfully along your intended route, or even get yourself off the mountain safely if the conditions turn against you, is immensely satisfying.

Good navigation skills also give you a much better connection with the landscape around you and allow you to plan your day out better, giving you the freedom to get off the beaten track and avoid the crowds.

From NNAS navigation courses to our personalised map reading weekends, whatever your level or experience, we can provide a navigation course that suits you.
