Being centrally located between Dartmoor and Exmoor National Parks and with the South West Coast Path on our doorstep, what we lack in mountains is certainly made up for by beauty of our coasts, countryside and moorlands. Each equally set to challenge your map reading and navigational skills at a level to suit.
Haven Banks offers recreational leisurely half or full day treks through to single or multi day and night ventures and expeditions. Whether you are looking for a venture on to the moor, some basic navigational skills or some moorland or mountain leadership skills, experience or qualifications, Haven Banks can support you throughout your venture.
We are Approved Activity Provider (AAP) for the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award for which we have supported numerous schools, colleges and youth organisations with their Bronze, Silver, Gold practice and qualifying expeditions.
We are also a provider of the National Navigation Award Scheme (NNAS) with which we provided countless adults and young people with training and accreditation in map reading and navigation.
More recently we have also successfully supported numerous schools with their official Ten Tors Challenge Training programmes.
Not forgetting, we also offer kayaking, canoeing, sailing and biking expedition options for the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, as well as National Governing Body coaching and leadership training and accreditation for NNAS and Mountain Training England (MTE)
