Learn a Skill Weekend Northern Lakes

Learn a Skill, Climb a Hill

Use the skills on our weekend navigation course to plan a climb up one of the mountains in the Northern Lakes.

“It is great to be able to use the learned skills and actually achieve something. It has given me confidence to take to the outdoors without the fear of getting lost. If I do get lost I will be able to find the route again” – Debbie

A great area to learn North Lakes

The Northern Lakes provide some of the best area to learn navigation skills. Away from the main tracks there is some challenging country with featureless land. However it is still a lovely landscape with stunning views.

Herdwick Inn, Penruddock

The navigation weekend is held in the Herdwick Inn, a traditional Lakeland pub between Penrith and Keswick.

  • Bed and Breakfast (Friday and Saturday night)
  • Double/Twin and Single rooms available (Single supplement £20 per night)
