We believe that anybody can learn to navigate, starting with a few simple tricks and techniques. We’re experienced in helping novices to develop their skills and confidence. We teach at your pace, making sure you understand one technique before moving on to a new topic. As part of our commitment to empowering people to enjoy the wonderful British countryside, our Bitesize Navigation course is offered at a heavily discounted price.
