The orienteering expert loves to move in the silence of the forests and into difficult territory away from the general public and from the overcrowded stadium. Nature is his world, map and compass are his tools. The orienteering has its origins in the vast Scandinavian forests in the Nordic countries. Combining mental and tactical racing is a discipline that particularly challenges physical condition and mental preparation.
The aim of orienteering is to precisely locate defined stations by choosing the best way to reach the end as quickly as possible. Today, the experts of this discipline have avant-garde cartographic material. The competitions are divided into different classes of age and performance. It is a sport that the whole family can enjoy.
