Mountain Navigation in Madrid

In this mountain navigation course we are going to learn to use instruments such as map, compass and altimeter in a correct and appropriate way depending of the scenario found in the mountain.

We will also learn advanced navigation techniques that will help us during hiking routes with poor weather or bad visibility.

Another very important part of the course it’s how to plan and organise hiking routes  before leaving home, with the help of the map, so the activity goes well and safe.

We will have a theory class at Manzanares el Real and then we will go out to practice in the mountains both days.
