Orienteering Instruction
Map & Compass Tuition
in the Peak National Park

One of our centre's most popular & successful
team building activities during training courses,
sports weekends & corporate events is
orienteering
and improving mapwork skills. Orienteering gets
everyone fully
involved and active - you can set
your own fast
or slow pace and the scenery is
breathtaking. It's
often a mixed ability team event,
so if you can't read a compass at the start you'll
manage just a well as
the guys who think they
are experts ! Perfect for mixed parties and
corporate "team away days"!

ORIENTERING FOR CORPORATE GROUPS IN THE PEAK DISTRICT
 
ORIENTEERING IN AUSTRIA'S TYROL REGION on foot, on skis, on snow shoes.
 

 

At the simplest level when we are running an
orienteering session for a corporate customer's
group we will brief & equip people in their
teams over a few cups of
tea, drive for about
5 minutes up on to the
adjacent high tops
Then we send off parties of two, three or four
people from a lonely "middle of nowhere"
check-point over 1,000 feet up a wild
moorland
plateau.
 
The aim is to get around our upland moorland
orienteering course at a walking pace...and to
have fun collecting as many control points as
possible in the time assigned ! The event crosses
some
superb scenery and can be arranged as a
competition or as an exercise in inter-team
co-operation and strategic planning. We also
have the technology to turn such simple
exercises into quite sophisticated & challenging
team-building exercises.

 

Lots of people love using and learning to develop
their skills with a map anda compass. Our staff
are always pleased to run
hillcraft and wayfinding
classes.


Orienteering and Wayfinding is a really a good
half-day activity come rain or
shine...and if the
fog is down it's even more challenging !
 


We can finish at a local inn - or back where we
started where cups
of orange juice and more teas
and coffees can be provided to refresh the group
ready for their next activity or prior to departure.
 
 
Champagne for the winning team ?
 
Glittering prizes ? If you want the winners of the
competition to receive
glittering prizes, plaques
to gloat over on the wall back at the office, etc
that's no problem ! Just tell us in advance what
your requirements are !
 
 
"Are you sure this is the short cut to the pub ?"
 
 
 
TOUGHER ORIENTEERING CHALLENGES....
 
Night orienteering and training in the use of GPS satellite navigation
systems and more remote locations and winter conditions are options
for groups which already have some good map & compass & navigation skills.
 
Phone to discuss fees for groups large or small !
Prices start from as low as £69 to £129 per person + vat per day.
 
 
We can offer you a wide choice
of standard and bespoke treasure hunts
- some using aerial photographs,
some with sound clues, imagery
and cryptic clues, and others with
plain old fashioned clues. These treasure
hunts can be completed on foot and/or using
bikes/minibuses etc. Some of these
can be run as business games - with
budgets and big profits to be made for
the teams and syndicates which plan
and manage their performance thoroughly !
