Orientation in the forest

On a beautiful autumn day, you set out to explore the mountains on a hike with your partner. At one point, you decide to leave the main trail to get away from the noise of the group that is following you too closely and also to spice up your outing. After going deeper into the forest, you walk for a long time in the quiet before turning back. All of a sudden, doubt creeps into your mind; are we going in the right direction to return to the reception? You doubt more and more, because the landscape is nothing like the one you saw on the way... That's it, you don't know which way to go anymore...

What do you do now?

If you don't know what to say, this introduction to guidance is for you!

It will allow you to quickly acquire some knowledge and techniques that can be very useful during your outdoor activities in remote areas. You will come out of this course feeling more confident and aware that the key to your safety is to be well prepared.

Get ready for some serious FUN, as our instructor will share his passion for the outdoors and orienteering with you through a nice mix of theory and practice.

Among other things, you will learn how:

  • Read and interpret a topographic map;
  • Use a compass to find your way around;
  • Use a GPS and navigate with it in the field;
  • Getting from one waypoint to another using a GPS;
  • You will have the chance to test the knowledge you have acquired during an orienteering rally.
