Learn to navigate

Navigation is one impressive skill to have under your belt. It's the key to many outdoor adventures and something that helps you feel confident exploring the great outdoors.

Under the guidance of your fantastic host, learn the basic skills of navigation using a map. You will build up your skills progressively in this experience, working at the right pace for you.

Discover how to stay safe outside and get to know the outdoors more intimately than ever before. This is great for anyone new to navigating or who wants to build up their confidence. There are no silly questions or limits on repeating information - you just need to come and have a go.

You'll also discover that you don't have to travel to remote places to enjoy the great outdoors or navigate! We'll enjoy amazing views of Bristol, wander through beautiful woodlands and explore an iron age hillfort!

Sounds pretty great to us - show us where to head on the map and we'll be there!
