Open your eyes to a whole new world! This inspiring one day course is a great introduction to map reading and the navigation skills you need to enjoy a great walk in the countryside without reliance on a phone app. We help you to make sense of the map and gain the confidence to plan and follow an interesting route along recognised paths and tracks. Our day starts with tea/coffee in the Village Cafe, Goring, learning how to get the most out of our maps and to introduce the compass. Mid morning we set off to navigate a walk and develop your knowledge and skills - map & compass provided and you will receive plenty of expert guidance and tips as we go. We return to the cafe to sum up the day.
Please bring food and dring for person consumption during the day (or purchase in cafe)
We will walk about 5 miles during the day. Good paths and tracks over grass/dirt/gravel. May be muddy in parts. Some hills, steep in part.
Map and compass is provided for your use during the day.
Complete Outdoors are our primary sponsors for 2018 & 2019. At their Bourne End (Herts) shop, you will discover all of the equipment, clothing and accessories you need to launch your next expedition into the great outdoors - whether a day's hike close to home, or an assault on the Matterhorn.
Could this be you? We are seeking additional sponsors to enable the festival to continue going from strength to strength - get in touch with AWeiss@chilternsaonb.org if you'd like to know more!
