Getting to Know your Map and Compass

The perfect opportunity to get to know your map and compass and learn the basics of how to use them to navigate in the outdoors.

Getting to know your Map and Compass is a great short introduction to Navigation skills.

As part of Snowdonia Walking Festival, Breese Adventures are delighted to be able to offer this this half day version of their Introduction to Navigation course.

Some of the things you will be introduced to include; estimating distances, map symbols, grid references and taking a bearing.


This will be a small group of 6 per instructor to enable you to get the most out of it.

A full day course like this would usually be £65+
