About the event

Join us for a beginner-friendly weekend designed to introduce you to the joys of hill walking in the UK's picturesque upland areas. 

This experience is perfect for those with no prior hill walking or navigation experience. In fact, it's especially suited for individuals who may have never explored hills or upland regions before.

Throughout the weekend, we will dedicate up to 6 hours each day to hill walking. Our goal is to provide you with the essential skills and knowledge needed to confidently embark on hill walks independently. By the end of our time together, you'll feel equipped and confident to navigate the hills and uplands on your own, using various routes and tracks. This is more than just a walk; it's the start of your journey in exploring the great outdoors!

  • Navigation - we will  introduce the basics of navigation on lowland/fell terrain. 
  • Kit preparation - prior to setting off we will talk through the equipment we need to take with us and how to pack our rucksacks
  • Planning & Pace - we will talk about planning routes, understanding pace, distance and our own limits
  • Weather - sources of forecasts and how weather can affect our choice of route, when to turn back and even if we should venture out at all.
  • Safety - hazards on the hills and what to do in an emergency
