Peak District Navigation Courses OverviewNational Navigation Award scheme logo

We are now open again. We are running all walking, navigation, climbing and leadership courses that run outside.

Peak District navigation courses from beginner to expert including the the National Navigation Award Scheme.

Beyond the Edge has been teaching navigation courses in the Peak District and further afield for over twenty five years. We know the best places and use tried and tested techniques to maximise your learning. In addition to the standard Peak District navigation courses we can provide bespoke navigation/map reading courses around the UK covering specialist navigational subjects including train the trainer, navigation for fell running and the use of GPS. We also run the NNAS Tutor award for those who want to teach navigation under the auspices of NNAS.

Our Peak District navigation courses are run in a friendly and relaxed manner so you don’t need to worry about your speed of learning or prior knowledge. With a comfortable training base we can also cope if the weather turns out less than helpful. To see what others have said about our navigational courses you might want to check out our Google and Facebook reviews.

“First I would like to say what a great course. It is one of the best courses I have ever been on” Simon.

Our base for navigation courses here in the Peak District is highly accessible, being only two and a half hours from central London by train. In addition to being stunningly beautiful, the Peak District is brilliant for learning navigation. The mix of gentle valleys and woodland coupled with the featureless moorland plateaus of Kinder and Bleaklow can be used to introduce map reading or push even the most experienced navigator.

We can offer any of the courses below as a private course. This may be as an individual, to benefit from one to one tuition, or a group so that you can select your ideal date. Our expert instructors can be hired from just £205 per day. Click here to enquire about a private course.

“Just wanted to say thanks again for a great navigation course which
