Peak Navigation Courses

Well our Spring season ofMap Reading and Navigation Courses is drawing to a close.  This year we have put on additional courses due to demand and the positive feedback we have received has been great.  It’s been wonderful for us too, as ever making new friends and even learning a thing or two from our students. One of the highlights was discovering the compass that pointed south!

Peak Navigation Courses are now running Hill Skills Courses based in the Peak District looking at a complete range of skills: Mountain Safety, Weather, Equipment, Navigation, GPS Navigation, Scrambling and Ropework.

Photo’s of this years courses are also on the website.  Check them out to see if you are there.  If you have any pictures from your course that we could use, please send them in.

With our other company, Sierra Nevada Guides we are also running Mountain Skills Courses based in Spains Sierra Nevada.  This course builds on the navigation you’ve learnt in the Peak and transposes it to the big mountains. Topics covered include: Mountain Safety, Weather, Equipment, Navigation, GPS Navigation, Altitude, Scrambling, Rock Climbing and Ropework and includes  an ascent of Spain’s highest mountain, Mulhacen 3482m. It might be billed as a course but we ensure that it is a good holiday too!

If you fancy joining us for a Walking Holiday in September, we have places available on all 3 holidays in the Sierra Nevada.

Finally we hope you have a good summer and look forward to you joining us on another course.  Our Autumn Programme of Navigation Courses is now available.
