Orienteering is an attractive natural and endurance sport for everyone regardless of whether you are a student, a senior or a competitive athlete. 

The races take place in a wide variety of terrain, such as forests, parks, or urban areas. 

In orienteering, the goal is to approach “checkpoints”, one after the other - in the prescribed order and in the shortest possible time, using only a map and compass. An electronic chip serves as proof and records the location and time when passing through the checkpoints. 

Orienteering can be practiced both as a recreational and competitive sport and is also suitable for schools. The sport offers the opportunity to combine content from the subjects of sport, biology, geography, and mathematics like no other.
