Orienteering

If you like mind challenges in life more, then this experience will be hard to avoid. It can also be a cute family sport. Orienteering is in the same time developing your mind and body, maintaining relatively development of those two. It is a sport that all adventurists absolutely love, but whether you are a adventurist or not, you should definitely try this, because this might just become one of your favorite activities.

Orienteering is a family of sports that requires navigational skills using a map and compass to navigate from point to point in diverse and usually unfamiliar terrain, and normally moving at speed. Participants are given a topographical map, usually a specially prepared orienteering map, which they use to find control points. Originally a training exercise in land navigation for military officers, orienteering has developed many variations. Among these, the oldest and the most popular is foot orienteering. For the purposes of this article, foot orienteering serves as a point of departure for discussion of all other variations, but basically any sport that involves racing against a clock and requires navigation using a map is a type of orienteering.
