About me

My name is Scott Mcalister and I am an accredited National Navigation Award Scheme (NNAS) tutor and qualified Mountain Leader based in Lancashire and South Cumbria. I am the founder of NavTrek and I have a real passion to inspire people to get outside and enjoy the countryside safely. 

At NavTrek we are offering courses for Silver and Bronze level Navigator awards across Lancashire, the Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales. Supporting people to learn the map and compass skills required for safe and enjoyable hikes and treks in the open countryside.

As a mountain leader and general outdoor enthusiast I also recognise the diversity of services that may be required and so at NavTrek we also offer bespoke mountain days. This includes group and 1-1 guided walks,  family days, corporate team building events, challenge event support and 1 day introduction to basic hill skills sessions.
