Orienteering

Orienteering is a hugely popular sport where the entire family can participate. In orienteering, people use precise maps and compasses to find control points in terrain. Orienteerists like to say, “You may say that orienteering slightly resembles treasure hunting, which is so joyfully done by Pippi Longstocking”. Orienteering does not require participants to have any prior experience or some particular background. All that is needed is the willingness to spend some time outdoors, proper clothing – and, oh yes, also good footwear, a compass and a map.
