The dark art of night navigation training. This is something that every mountain walker should be more than happy with. Therefore, being able to navigate at night or in poor weather is just as important as any other course. More often than not people get caught out because they don’t know how to navigate in these situations and are caught short. This makes a great bolt on to a 1 day skills courses where you’ll get plenty of practice.

This night navigation training course is aimed to provide participants with the skill set and ability to tackle the darkness with confidence. These courses are fantastic as a bolt on to any of our any of our other Mountain training courses .
