Welcome to the South, Welcome to Andalucia!



This is our signature camp and the most visited one, far South in Andalusia, with more than 400 permanent controls and ca. 32 sq kms of varied and gentle sand dune terrain, most of it very recently made or reviewed by our cartographers. This camp is quite unique as it is ‘step out the door’ of the apartment and start orienteering. The weather conditions are mostly mild, prices very competitive. Apart from forest terrains, this part of Andalusia has multiple white villages, superb for Sprint orienteering!

Regional competition 11th to 12th February 2023
Official SportIdent trainings 6th-9th February 2023


This camp is available all year long. From 2023 we will include a system of “virtual controls”: O-Range (for Garmin watches). This way, you can run the courses at any moment, and get a signal from your watch when you reach the control!

In addition,

  • Colored control tapes (at some of the trainings) will be in the forest and regularly checked by our staff  between 15Jan2023 and 15Mar2023
  • Rest of year: tapes might still be there but this is not at all guaranteed. Virtual-controls systems will be available.

There are several permanent and organized (sportident) trainings for you to do the days before the event. You can book complete packages including accommodation but also maps only!

The sprint maps are in fantastic Andalusian white villages, often challenging with narrow streets and corners, low in traffic.
