Suitable for beginners. Medium day bushwalking.
Essential for anyone who wants to explore by map and compass and go beyond the beaten track.
Becoming lost is not an option for bushwalkers, backcountry skiers and snowboarders. Correct navigation can take you safely over any terrain and can save lives.
We begin with the ancient art of navigation by the sun, moon and stars. Then we familiarise ourselves with compass and map skills before putting our knowledge into practice.
It all happens step by step for complete understanding, guided by our experienced instructors. Among other things, you will learn how to take bearings and locate your position on a map, navigate through fog and thick undergrowth, understand altimeters and GPS navigation systems and, most importantly, how not to get lost!
This course will make you a confident bush navigator no matter where you go!
