What is Orienteering?
Orienteering is a fun and challenging outdoor activity in which participants navigate their way on foot, using only map and compass, along trails (beginners), or cross-country (expert), or a combination of both (intermediate). Orienteering events are held in woodlands, deserts, grasslands, city parks, or almost anywhere outdoors, and each event is divided into several levels of difficulty: from a fun, non-competitive family outing, to a challenging competitive sport. Events are also attended by serious outdoorsmen and women who want to practice map and compass skills in a safe, controlled setting.
