Orienteering is also called “the sport of the forest” because the perfect place where to practice it is, indeed, the forest.
This Nordic sport aims at crossing the finish line in the less possible time after passing through a sequence of check points. You can do it by soft walking, running or riding a MTB.
At disposal you only have a printed topographic map and a compass to help you orienting yourself - and thus the name orienteering.
The world championship WOC 2014 and “5 days of the fortresses” took place in Alpe Cimbra in Trentino, showing that this territory is ideal also for important orienteering races.
Orienteering is a reason more to choose a mountain holiday.
