General map

Orienteering and holiday week 2021!


Enjoyable orienteering is available throughout the week in typical fell terrain of northeastern Finland, which is open and easy to tread. The terrain makes it possible to plan courses of varying difficulty levels, from championship level to path orienteering.



A myriad of recreational activities are available in the surrounding area. There is something for everyone – old and young alike.
