We offer a range of navigation courses, wild camping courses and Dartmoor experiences within the stunning scenery of Dartmoor National Park. Dartmoor offers 368 square miles of beautiful countryside but many people do not have the confidence to venture off the beaten path and experience her wilder side. We firmly believe that, with the right outdoor skills, Dartmoor can be for everybody, and our courses and experiences have been designed as learning experiences that encourage safe exploration and build independence. Whether you are interested in learning to navigate using a map and compass, experiencing wild camping on Dartmoor for the first time or just having some fun and exploring the landscape, we have the Dartmoor course for you.
We run navigation courses for adults but also include at least one ladies only course per year. Our popular ladies only navigation courses have been running for 3 years now and we are proud to have enabled women from across the UK to explore further and with more confidence. We enjoy hearing about our trainees’ adventures, which to date include solo bivvy nights, long distance footpaths and wild camping adventures. Successful navigation relies on a set of key skills and, with over 25 years of expedition teaching experience behind us, we know exactly how to pitch training to suit our audience. If you want to learn to use a map and compass in a fun and relaxed environment with like-minded people, our beginner navigation courses are for you.
Sunday 21st June 2020 (ladies) – £50 (more course information)
Saturday 1st August 2020 (adults) – £50 (more course information)
Navigating at night is the perfect way to hone your existing navigation skills. Find out what Dartmoor looks like (or doesn’t look like) at night and join us for this fun and exciting evening navigation session on East Dartmoor. For adults with some previous map and compass experience.

This course is now complete… Watch out for a similar course in November 2020 or get in touch for bespoke opportunities.
Here on Dartmoor we are really lucky to be the only place in England where there is a legal right to wild camp (perhaps better described as backpack camping). However this doesn’t mean that you can camp anywhere on Dartmoor or that you don’t need to learn a few basic wild camping safety and environmental rules. Our wild camping weekends are a great mix of fun and challenge and we make every effort to tailor them to meet the needs of participants with safety, packing, food and navigation advice. If you want to try wild camping for the first time or revisit your camping skills, our wild camping courses are for you. We offer both summer and winter wild camping courses.
Thursday 30th and Friday 31st July (adults) – £120 (more course information)
Saturday 22nd and Sunday 23rd August (adults) – £120 (more course information)
And for the really brave… how about a winter wild camping weekend?
Saturday 15th and Sunday 16th February (adults) – £130 (more course information)
