All our itineraries are flexible and we pride ourselves on providing client lead learning. A typical Itinerary would be

Day 1

We would outline the course and set our main learning aims. We will look strategies & orientation away from marked paths, before setting our signs on some pacing and bearings.

Our second day together is about stepping it up with more complex ground and taking into account some navigation strategies and just using the map contours to move around the mountains. If possible we incorporate some night time navigation too.
