At the core of orienteering, a race where you must travel from checkpoint to checkpoint, using the quickest and best routes possible to help you make the best time and cross the finish line first, the most vital skill is that of effective navigation.
A key skill to have in a range of outdoor experiences, activities and sports, we will teach you how to navigate using several types of maps and a compass so that you never need worry about being lost again while remaining sure of the path you are travelling.
Navigation training is a great way to build self confidence and self assurance in an unfamiliar situation and location. Get in contact with the team at Arthog Outdoor Education Centre Orienteering to plan your adventure with us.
Join us for a day of adventure high above a disused slate quarry leaping from challenge to challenge with the high rope's course at Arthog Outdoor Education Centre Canopy.
We have 3 nerve wracking challenges set up at 15 metres about the bottom of this old quarry, the Postman's Walk, where you walk along a single rope with only another rope to hold onto and balance yourself. Next is the Burma Bridge, a rope bridge that swings back and forth with every step, and wooden slats that slide along the rope as you make your way across this challenge. The day ends, either way with a daring Leap of Faith leaping out into the open air with nothing beneath you to hit the bell showing that you have completed the challenge.
While all of this may sounds incredibly dangerous, please keep in mind you will be firmly harnessed in at all times to overhanging wires, and our fully qualfied instructors will be on hand at all times to ensure that your day goes smoothly and safely.
Our high ropes course provides a great experience for groups of all ages, speak with one of our dedicated staff at Arthog Outdoor Education Centre Canopy to book your adventure.
