In the selection of outdoor sports, orienteering is still an understated discipline. Its combination of hiking and a treasure hunt can be approached as a great family activity on the 12 permanent routes on offer in the area or as a competitive time trial, as part of the National Orienteering event proposed by the French Orienteering Federation (sprint, long and medium distance).
Its assets: it is an activity that everyone can try, perfect for getting off the beaten track at your own pace. It offers a fun, adventurous element that is sometimes missing from a classic hike, as well as an analysis to divert attention away from the effort. What could be better than getting lost whilst knowing exactly where you are?! All you need is a compass and map to find all the markers on the routes.
