Orienteering as a sport originated in the Scandinavian countries.
It consists in following a pre-defined route through a forest setting while finding different check-points along the way using only a compass and a highly detailed topological map.
It is a very funny and involving activity. It is also perfectly suitable for team-building courses. All you need to bring is clothes for running in the forest, good trekking boots and a sense of adventure. You can also try some alternatives: mountain bike orienteering along the cycle lane of the valley or winter snowshoe orienteering. The courses will be run by the Italian champion Marco Bezzi.
New for 2012: Try mountain bike orienteering. The ideal activity for team building and outdoor training.
