Welcome to the South, Welcome to Andalucia!

HUELVA DIY CAMPS

OVERVIEW

We held 3 very successful Andalucia-O-Meetings in this area and have, over the years, built a solid network of 45sq kms (most of them new or renewed in the last 18 months) of maps around this holiday resort of Punta Umbria. This camp is one of unique ones as it allows you to ‘step out the door’ and start for endless hours and kms of orienteering in varied terrains and challenging trainings, most of them smooth surface, gentle for the ligaments. The weather conditions are mostly mild, prices very competitive.

AVAILABILITY

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 01Jan2019 and 15Mar2019.
Rest of year: tapes might still be there but this is not at all guaranteed.

Terrains

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

The sprint maps are in Andalusian white villages, some with very narrow streets and direction changes, others more generic ones.

O-PACKAGES

This camp has >45 sq kms of maps, of which >35sq kms is new or has been reviewed the last 18months. From the hotel area in Punta Umbria, you can run for ca. 15km straight line on a map (>30km back and forth). Find our training offer here. We offer training packages of different sizes (MINI, MAXI, MEGA), depending the duration of your stay and the amount of O-Trainings you want.
As an optional package, we offer 3 original trainings (Sprint, Middle, Long)  in the Minas de RioTinto (Sierra de Aracena), on which a event for Andalucian League was held in Nov 2018. Maps are brand new, terrains very original and the area is perfect for a day trip of orienteering and culture, 1h10min drive from Punta Umbria.
