“learning to navigate your way safely around the fells”

We can provide maps and compasses if needed, and will select locations nearby your holiday base in The Lake District or Yorkshire Dales that best meets your map reading objectives. 

Remember that our guide will be working 1:1 with you, so you can ask any questions and tailor the day to cover the map reading techniques that you wish to become good at, then practice them, in some great locations, until they become second nature

“your guide will be working 1:1 with you”

Wether its setting the map, taking bearings, 6 figure grid references, aiming off or pacing that you wish to become good at, our map reading days will be ideal, also for walkers who rely on GPS and other gadgets in the hills and may never have used a paper map, but may have to one day as a back up if technology fails.

“enjoy finding your way around”

By the end of your map reading day, our hope is that you will have the confidence to plan further days in the hills and enjoy finding your way around The Lake District, Yorkshire Dales and anywhere else you choose to visit.
