Wilderness Navigation

From $314

The primary reason for most outdoor accidents and disasters is getting lost.  During this active two day program we will teach you how not to have this as your reality.

Working with all aspects of day and night time navigation techniques, you will learn how a wide and rarely taught series of navigation techniques and tactics to ensure your future well being.  Many people have a heavy reliance on technology for navigation, so we will embrace this, learning how to use it to 100% and then learning what to do when it does not work!

Your expert instructor who has over 30 years of experience navigating in extended expeditions across 5 continents, will provide you with both a analytical and kinesthetic range to tools and techniques to navigate with, no matter what is going on around you.
