Welcome to the South, Welcome to Andalucia!

HUELVA CAMP 2022

OVERVIEW

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

AVAILABILITY

This DIY camp is available all year long. In addition,

  • Colored control tapes will be in the forest and regularly checked by our staff  between 15Jan2022 and 15Mar2022
  • Rest of year: tapes might still be there but this is not at all guaranteed. You can still train though

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.

O-PACKAGES

Plenty of challenging o-trainings, varied in types and terrains. You can have your own plan and order the maps you want of each training. If you don’t want to think too much, we recommend to take the trainings following the list (for example, if you want 6 trainings, take the 6 first ones).

Our prices:

  • < 6 maps: 6 euros/map
  • 6-8 maps: 5,50 euros/map
  • 9-11 maps: 5 euros/map
  • > 11 maps: 4,50 euros/map
