Hill skills

Get more out of the outdoors with our hill skills. We coach navigation from beginners to advanced with map and compass and with GPS. We also offer an introduction to scrambling and much more.


Our scheduled one, two or three-day hill skills courses in the Peak District, the Lake District or Snowdonia will help you develop the skills you need to fully enjoy the mountain environment.  All of our hill skills courses are centred around the main themes of weather; navigation; moving around in the hills; clothing and equipment; the environment and how to cope if things go wrong. There is an option on our two and three-day courses to include an overnight wild-camp, where you spend one or two nights in the mountains.


Under the guidance of a qualified mountain leader, we will show the techniques and pass on the information needed for a truly remarkable mountain day.  These courses are a great way to gain confidence so that you can travel independently in the mountains.


We have a number of dates and venues in our schedule but if you don't find anything to suit you then contact us with your preferred dates and we'll see what we can do just for you.


Here are some examples of what we do and remember - if you've got something particular in mind then please get in touch to discuss.
