If you were to focus on developing just one fundamental skill that would not only ensure your survival from mountain to desert to tundra, but also be of use regardless of the medium by which you are travelling - navigation is the clear choice.

Our navigation course is both theoretical and practical. It is focused on the use of map and compass but an additional module on natural navigation (using the sun and time, stars or ecological signs) can be added, as can a night-navigation, bike-navigation or a GPS-module.

Map exercises include map memory tests, pin-point micro and macro navigation tests and the course culminations with an orienteering challenge.
