  • Learn how to properly use maps and compasses.

Description

Have you ever wanted to learn how to properly navigate your way through a mountain range? Then this full day trip is a great option. Moreover, you will get to learn all about navigation in the beautiful Urbasa Range in the Spanish province of Navarra.

There are many great advantages to learning how to properly navigate your way through natural areas. Firstly, it is essential to ensuring your safety, as knowing how to use a compass and map will prevent you from getting lost. It will also help you avoid hazardous areas, which will then prevent potential accidents. Finally, learning how to properly navigate through natural areas will also help you find the best, most scenic places to explore. Thus making your travelling experience even more fun.

Throughout this full day course, in addition to teaching you all about how to use maps and compasses, we will also practice navigation on various trails in the Urbassa range. And, by the end of the day, you will definitely be more adept at orientation than you were at the beginning of the day.

No experience is necessary to participate on this trip. As a result, it is open to anybody who is interested in improving their ability to navigate through various, natural environments.

To be a part of this trip, all you have to do is send me a request. I look forward to hearing from you and guiding you.

Also, if you’re looking for a winter course, you can check this North Spain one-day snowshoeing course that I guide too.

About the guide

UIMLA Mountain Leader from Spain

As a guide, I like when my clients enjoy and have an active participation, so they can learn to be autonomous in the risk management. With the security as a priority, the client can develop as a mountaineer.

That's why among the activities I offer as a mountain leader, I also have formation courses and free talks about security.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard

Our first time with Explore-Share. An absolutely fantastic experience from start to finish. Extremely good value, very well organised with attention to detail. We travel widely and this has by far been the best of experiences. Well done to all concerned. We are already looking at booking another trip!
