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!


This DIY camp is available all year long. However, to note that:

  • Colored control tapes/stripes will be in the forest and regularly checked by our staff between 14Jan2020 and 15Mar2020.
  • Rest of year: tapes might still be there however this is not at all guaranteed.


Terrains are generally fast to very fast, with lots of details, flat and hilly, sand dunes and pines, mixed with some low bushes, especially near the coast.

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


We had cartographers reviewing 7sq kms of the Barbate forests in Nov18 and 5sq kms early 2017. All sprint maps have also been fine-tuned this year.

We offer training packages of different sizes (MINI, MAXI, MEGA), depending the duration of your stay and the amount of O-Trainings you want.
