We can run navigation sessions almost anywhere; the more varied and rugged the terrain, the more challenging the navigation becomes.

For prospective mountain and hillwalking leaders and those who need to navigate in remote terrain we use the wilder areas of the National Parks; primarily the Lake District, Peak District, Yorkshire Dales, Brecon Beacons and Snowdonia.
