Lost & Found is an opportunity to learn how to read the landscape as well as a map. Over a 4 mile walk you will discover that maps are just one of several navigation tools at your disposal to help you get from A to B without getting lost or needing to be found! You will learn how to orientate a map, find yourself within the landscape, practice proven navigation methods to keep you from straying from the path, confidently lead others and relocate. It won’t be all work, the walk itself is also a beautiful stroll.

Read what others have had to say about their experience of Lost and Found sessions:

“I had a great navigation session with Malinka yesterday. She has helped me to understand how to read a map and how to use my strength (attention to detail) to navigate the countryside successfully. Highly recommended.”

“I did a lovely walk with the experienced walking guide Malinka as part of the Alton Walking Week. This session was focussed on map reading/navigation and Malinka was a fantastic teacher, guide and great company. She was patient, explained things clearly and allowed us to navigate the group on some short sections whilst she supervised us. I learnt several very useful lessons and will use these on my walks. The walk was very well organised, had wonderful scenery and was timed to perfection. We even managed to avoid the rain and arrived back at the car park just before the forecasted rain arrived. Malinka is highly recommended and I would have no hesitation in reaching out to her again. Thank you!”
