About the event

Improve your confidence in traveling outdoor, and reduce your reliance on technology.

Our phones have become important tools for our outdoor exploration, however relying on a device that might fail can be a risk. 

Join us as we journey into the world of topographic maps, how to use them, and with some basic knowhow and a compass you can keep your self found and go further with confidence.
