Hill Walking and Navigation Courses

“It was great to be able to navigate and actually learn too! Very rewarding”

“Thanks once again for your clear concise, and patient instruction. Much appreciated!”

We provide hill walking and navigation training on Dartmoor and other locations throughout the UK. Typically we work with people on Dartmoor, but we are more than happy to travel to other locations by request. The following provides some examples of the type of hill walking and navigation training we can provide.

Personal Navigation Coaching

Louise Ansell - Vixon ClimbingWe’ll work with you to develop your skills and confidence to navigate effectively in the mountain and moorland environment. Beginners, intermediate and more advanced skills can all be catered for.

General Navigation Skills: Getting Confident with the Basics

Navigation SkillsIf you are new to navigation, want to develop confidence or simply want a refresher this is the ideal course for you. We work with you in small groups and focus on helping you to get a really good understanding of the basic navigation skills for walkers.

Day to Night Navigation: Skills to Deal with Poor Visibility Conditions

Day to Night Navigation SkillsGet to grips with navigating in bad weather and at night. We can provide intensive tailored coaching to hone in on the skills necessary to stay safe when the weather comes in or darkness falls. This course is ideal for those that already have a general grasp of basic navigation skills, including use of the map and compass.

Preparation for Hill Walking and Navigation Assessments

Assessment PrepWhether you have college navigation assessments or you’re planning to go for one of the Mountain Training qualifications, we can help you to iron out any wrinkles, and fine tune your skills so that you are in the strongest position possible for that assessment.

Moving Well and Staying Safe on Steep Terrain

Steep Terrain TrainingThe ability to move effectively on different types of terrain and gradients is crucial for staying safe and comfortable in the mountain and moorland environment. We can work with you to offer tips and techniques for operating efficiently and safely on steep slopes and rocky terrain.
