orienteer and compete in the sand dunes next to the sea

Alicante Organized Camp


Sweet sanddune 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!

Our staff members will put controls with Sportident to allow you to do your high quality trainings. They will also be available to technical support or advise. At the end of the camp, you will be able to participate to a regional event just 10mins drive from the camping.

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 organized camp will have the following program:

  • 26Feb-2Mar: organized training camp with Sportident trainings in Alicante area
  • 03Mar: regional event in El Molar (Alicante)
  • Optional to combine this camp with Murcia O-Festival 16 to 24Feb


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 7sq 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 (coloured tapes) are waiting for you in the Alicante area. Most of the trainings will be coastal (pine & sanddunes terrains), a few trainings more rough, land-wards.

Important note: please be aware that Guardamar forests are heavily visited (by orienteers and non-orienteers). We have been informed that this season, tapes/stripes  and even also flags and sportidents are being taken away / stolen by visitors. Therefore, we do have our local staff members checking the tapes/stripes at regular intervals but cannot garantee they will all be there. Thanks for your understanding.
