We provide friendly, professional instruction in the subjects of Overland Navigation, Survival and Combat Survival. Our courses are specialised and as such the instructor to student ratio is never greater than 1:2, and often 1:1 on certain courses. As all of our courses are residential, you will be learning in a warm, quiet and friendly environment nestled in the heart of the Sierra Cabrera; with the instructor/student ratio being as it is, the high personal instruction time ensures that learning is quick, easy and above all stress free. All courses are based on the mastery of each skill in turn and are not time based in any way; this ensures that should you find a certain skill difficult to master, the instructor will spend more time with you at no additional cost until the correct level of proficiency has been attained. Our outdoor adventure holidays are run at a pace that suits your fitness and ability; we are able to be extremely flexible during your stay with us as the majority of the activities are in-house. Hiking, scrambling, rock climbing, running, mountain biking, snorkelling, old mine workings, subterranean passages, spectacular caves and ancient burial grounds are there for the adventurous. The area is so incredible that parts of the film ‘Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade’ were filmed locally. The more adventurous may wish to summit Mulhacen, mainland Spain’s highest peak at over 11,400ft or explore the old gold mining shafts and tunnels at Rodalquilar as part of their adventure holiday. All this adds up to a great time, all the time. The Importance of Geography To state that our Overland Navigation courses involve geography may seem a little obvious; however, it may seem a little less obvious to state the importance of geography in Survival and Combat Survival. This importance is such that it may make the difference between life and death. We continually study the important correlations between geomorphology and our course subjects; this enables us to constantly improve the course content in order to stay at the forefront of outdoor education in these specialist subjects.
