This 2 day course introduces you to the wide range of skills required to enjoy hiking across the UK's mountains, whilst giving you plenty of opportunities to develop those skills. To get the best out of your hiking adventures it is essential to have a great understanding of how to plan a route, navigate in poor conditions, walk across a variety of terrain and what to do in the event of an emergency. On this course we start by looking in depth at how to plan a safe hiking route, discussing map interpretation as we do so. We then share compass skills, timing and pacing to develop simple and efficient strategies for navigating through poor conditions. These techniques will be practiced and honed in to find small mountain features. During the 2 days we will also spend time exploring techniques to help you move more confidently across a variety of terrain. There will also be ample opportunities to discuss safety procedures and explore the usage of modern technology to aid our navigation. By the end of the course you should feel inspired and confident to tackle the UK's fantastic mountains, however bad the visibility. Not looking to go into so much detail or perhaps you don't have two days spare? No worries! Why not check out our 1 day mountains skills course?
