What you'll do

When was the last time you walked a new path without your phone as a back-up to tell you where you are? In this short course, I will teach you how to properly orientate yourself in the woods when your battery dies - using nature, your watch, maps and a compass. Depending on the weather, we'll take a short round-trip in the forest and explore a few scouting techniques. There will be enough time for everyone to try out the methods and to ask more questions.

Floreana

I am a nature-lover and a certified hiking, nature and landscape guide. I hold a Masters degree in Geography so I have a passion for maps and landscapes. When I'm outside walking, hiking or biking, I love to take a more detailed look at my surroundings and "read nature" to get the best feel for where I am.

What's included

Equipment
A few compasses and maps. Please bring your own if you have one.

Where you'll be

We will meet up at the "Haus der Natur" (house of nature, a nice interactive nature exhibition) near the Waldau game reserve (reachable by car or by bus - final stop Waldau). From there, we'll take a walk into the forest and the woods and practice some orienteering techniques. The walk ends again at Haus der Natur, which is worth a visit if you have some more time.

Things to keep in mind

Cancellation policy

Any experience can be canceled and fully refunded within 24 hours of purchase, or at least 7 days before the experience starts.

Communication policy

Always communicate through Airbnb. To protect your payment, never transfer money or communicate outside of the Airbnb website or app.

Guest requirements

Up to 10 guests ages 10 and up can attend. Parents may also bring children under 2 years of age.

Government ID

You’ll need to take a picture of yourself that matches the photo on your ID. This is so Airbnb can confirm who’s actually going on the experience. You’ll only have to do this once.

More tips

You will walk at your own risk. I am not liable for any injuries.
