My two day masterclass will give you all the skills needed to navigate around the mountains safely and with confidence. Over the two days we will look at compass use, maps, measuring distances and how to navigate through adventurous or complex terrain. The course is open to all levels from beginner to advanced. It is ideal for people looking to undertake an NGB award like H&M leader or Mountain Leader Award.

Gabi - Two Day Mountain Navigation
I had really great two days. Matt is very patient, experienced instructor, can perfectly judge the level of your fitness and adjust the route to that, the course was fun and relaxed. I've learnt a lot and I can only recommend booking any course with him.


I’ve never used a map or compass, will this course be ok for me?
This course is ideal for people with little or no experience at map reading or using a compass. Through the two days I will give you the fundamental skills needed to navigate safely and effectively over mountainous terrain.
I’m not very fit, how far do we walk?
You don't need to be a fell running champion but you will need a reasonable level of fitness, as we will be walking for up to 7-8 hours in the mountains. 
Do you provide equipment?
I can provide maps on request but would always recommend buying your own and Silva Type 4 Compass. For the day you will only require normal hiking gear and waterproofs. Kit list will be provided when you make a booking.
Will accommodation be included?
No accommodation is not included however Capel Curig has a great selection of places to stay for all budgets. Let me know if you need local accomodation details.
