JWOC2021 Training Packages


Ever since the Mediterranean Championships in Orienteering was held in Aguiar da Beira, back in 2014, the sport of Orienteering has been gradually implemented in the county. The natural qualities of the forests surrounding Aguiar da Beira, allow the organization of top quality Orienteering competitions and training camps, recognized internationally by the awards of 4th and a 3rd best course of the year (by WorlfofO.com) in 2014 and 2017.

All these qualities were recognized by the Portuguese and the International Orienteering Federations, allowing Aguiar da Beira to be the host of the 2021 Junior World Orienteering Championships.

The packages below will be available until JWOC2021, but trainings will change constantly until then, allowing you to visit Aguiar da Beira several times in order to prepare for an extremely technical JWOC2021.
