THIS COURSE WILL HELP ANYONE GAIN THE CONFIDENCE TO PLAN AN OVERNIGHT STAY IN THE MOUNTAINS

objective

The Expedition Skills course expands upon our Hill Skills day and incorporates the process of planning an overnight expedition in the mountains. We will discuss subjects such as navigation, weather, equipment, route planning, camp planning, night navigation, food and food preparation and local geology and flora and fauna.

This is a two-day course and includes a wild camping expedition. We are also able to supply kit such as tents for the expedition if it is needed.

what to expect

This is a practical 2 day course so the majority of the day will be spent out on the hill. We will keep classroom learning to an absolute minimum. 

experience required

Some experience hill walking would be advantageous. The course will require fitness for 2 days in the mountains, as well as the ability to carry an expedition backpack for the duration.
