orienteer in the sand dunes next to the sea

Alicante DIY Camp


Sweet sand-dune terrains next to the Mediterranean. Alicante is a classical. This camp is quite unique as it is ‘step out the door’ of the bungalows and start orienteering. The camping we recommend has well equipped bungalows, a fitness areas and spa, all on the map!
And last but not least: the maps are NEW; together with the local O-club, we renewed the 7sq kms of Guardamar dune maps in Oct 2018 (Guardamar Norte, Guardamar Sur, La Mata), quality and fun guaranteed!


This DIY camp is available all year long. However, to note that:
Colored control tapes will be in the forest and regularly checked by our staff  between 01Feb2020 and 15Mar2020.
Rest of year: tapes might still be there but this is not at all guaranteed.


Terrains in Alicante are next to La Marina, mostly coastal sand dunes, pine forest, very fast and detailed.


Together with the local O-club, we renewed the 7 sq kms of Guardamar dune maps in Oct 2018 (Guardamar Norte, Guardamar Sur, La Mata). Our offer has  training packages of different sizes (MINI, MAXI, MEGA), depending the duration of your stay and the amount of O-Trainings you want. More than 400 permanent controls (colored tapes) are waiting for you in the Alicante area. Most of the trainings will be coastal (pine & sand-dunes terrains), a few trainings more rough, land-wards.
