Moorland Wilderness Training


Hike from Meldon Reservoir on the North Moor to Princetown over two days, crossing the army ranges and the remotest terrain in the south west. 

Climb the highest points on Dartmoor and Camp at Fur Tor which is often referred to as the south west’s only pocket of wilderness. A perfect place for star gazing and escaping the hustle and bustle of urban life.

This is a serious undertaking and would suit people with experience of hiking the coastpaths- who are hoping to gain moorland and mountain experience, building confidence and knowledge. The aim is to give you the skills to be independent and competent in the hills.

Minimum equipment and a pre training trip & check up will/may be required.

You will learn navigation, campcraft, emergency scenarios and solutions, equipment and techniques

Available on weekends during autumn and winter 2021/22. Available for individuals and groups.
