Welcome to the South, Welcome to Andalucia!

Barbate Organized Camp


This organized camp will take place in our signature and most visited area, far South in Andalucia, with more than 400 permanent controls and ca. 32 sq kms of varied and gentle sand dune terrain, all 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 Andalucia has multiple white villages, superb for Sprint orienteering!

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.


This organized camp will have the folowing program:

  • 13-15 Feb: 1st part of organized training camp with Sportident trainings in Barbate area
  • 16 Feb: Regional event Monte Algaida, SanLucar (Cadiz)
  • 17-18 Feb: 2nd part of organized training camp with Sportident trainings in Barbate area


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 offer training packages of different sizes (MINI, MAXI, MEGA), depending the duration of your stay and the amount of O-Trainings you want. We are currently preparing the training package. Below is the 2019 training schedule, which gives you an idea how things will be in 2020.
