Map Reading and Navigation Courses make great Christmas Presents!


Peak Navigation Courses run map reading and navigation courses throughout the year.  Our peak demand season is the months of January, February and March. This is due to a variety of reasons: New Years resolutions to get fit or get out walking; people wanting to learn navigation ahead of a walking holiday planned as their summer holiday;  and people in receipt of our courses as a Christmas present.

What a great idea giving a Map Reading and Navigation Course as a Christmas present!
