Come and learn to orientate yourself, to use a compass, a GPS, an app ... all year long. The tools are evolving and full of possibilities are available to us to orient ourselves in the field. But the basics of orientation remain the same: map, compass, triangulation...

During half a day I organize for you an orienteering race around Villard-de-Lans in the Vercors massif, during which you will find tags and solve riddles. You will evolve hiking or snowshoeing, depending on the season and the weather conditions.
