We are qualified Mountain Leaders with 30 years of practical experience in the hills and mountains of the British Isles.

The thought of using a map and compass in difficult and demanding situations can be quite daunting especially in a mountain setting.

We aim to demystify the whole process and give you the confidence to go out there on the hills

and tackle the worst that the weather and the terrain can throw at you.

We are based near the Rhinogs which is one of the more remote and wild areas of Snowdonia.

In fact if we meet someone else while we are out on the hills we are very surprised.

So its ideal country for practising your navigation techniques.

You can stay with us on our traditional Welsh hill farm and walk straight out onto the hills.

We have a very personal and informal approach to our courses so we can have a very flexible approach to your individual needs.

We aim to give you the confidence to go out and navigate the mountains yourself.
