FMC: Freedom of the Hills
The Otago Tramping and Mountaineering Club (Dunedin) are holding their annual tramping skills course during February and March, 2018. This affordable course is run by members of the club, and is a good introduction to basic tramping skills that will allow you to enjoy and explore our hills and mountains safely.
The course consists of 4 evening sessions that cover all the essential tramping skills, from clothing and equipment through map and compass. Two instruction day trips are included, one covers navigation while the second one is a practical river crossing session. The course concludes with the option of either a day or overnight tramping trip into the local Silver Peaks reserve.
