Orienteering Trainings

 

The training of specific skills in Orienteering is our passion and our company’s goal is to always deliver maximum quality in our orienteering training sessions.

For this reason, every year we prepare new trainings for the groups that visit us. This way we can keep the training quality high, visiting only the most up to date areas of the training maps we have available.

Of course, we are always open to costumise some of the trainings to fit your own plans!

 

Below you can find our training list for 2018.
