To be honest we believe that the best way to learn orienteering is the same as the best way to learn to drive. Somebody at your side telling you what to do.

Contact us and we’ll arrange to meet you at the next local event and take you around a course. We’ll explain everything that goes on at an event and what the procedures are. We’ll do this as many times as you want. When you feel happy about being self-sufficient, off you go.

We can handle singles, couples, families or groups. If you want a lift that’s no problem. You just need appropriate clothing/shoes for the outdoors. If you have a compass bring it along. If not, we have plenty of spares. Usually there is outside catering at the events.
