Navigation Skills

WildWays can provide Navigation skills in the Peak District and South Yorkshire region. We offer:

  • Re-freshers days in using a map and compass
  • Advice and useful resources to help create the perfect family adventure without getting lost
  • Tips on how to navigate off a hill in the dark?

If any of the above apply to you, then WildWays can provided the right navigation skills day for you. The day is aimed at both walkers and runners who want to get out more and explore the fells and moorlands, who may be relying on other people, guidebooks, well-defined routes or their phone!

How to join?

There are two way to join. You can either:

  • Check out the Upcoming Events page for this seasons Navigation Skills days.
  • If you have a group of friends and family with any specific requirements, hire me and have a fun day out learning something new together.

What’s involved?

The navigation day involves a mixture of classed-based exercises where you get familiar with maps with some fun hands-on activities followed by walks where you put your new skills into practise. We may even have a mini orienteering race at the end of the day if people want to finish the day off by putting all their skills together.

WildWays will supply maps and compasses on the day but feel free to bring your own if you have them.
