Welcome to Orienteering

If you like being outside and exploring nature, then this is the sport for you. Using a map and your powers of observation, you'll navigate through a course of pre-set checkpoints.

Beginners are welcome, and it is not unusual to see entire families orienteering, either together or on different levels of courses.
