Join us on August 16th at Alpkit Keswick for a family friendly navigation day led by Harriet of Navigation with Harriet.
Bring the family and join us for a fun day of navigation with the kids, a perfect way to spend some fun time with the family while learning a new skill.
The day will start by looking at the maps in the Alpkit store where we will grab a brew. After that we will ensure we have our bags packed (waterproofs, a warm layer, food and water) and head out on a gorgeous walk in the Lake District, we plan to summit Latrigg which is a small hill just outside of Keswick with incredible views.
There will be lots of stops for photos on the way and at the top, plus a stop for making some hot chocolate on a camping stove. The day will finish around mid afternoon back at Alpkit Keswick for snacks and a drink.
