Orienteering in Umbria

Back to the exploration

Orienteering in Umbria

Challenge your friends or other competitors in an exciting orienteering race in Umbria surrounded by nature.

Orienteering in Umbria, Valnerina, is a unique opportunity to spend a day out in the open air by testing your sense of orientation and your exploration skills.

This sport is suitable for everyone, provides direct contact with nature and can be carried out at an amateur or competitive level. Driven by your intuition and your ability, you’ll kick off your adventure equipped with a compass and topographic map and set off in search of the pre-established control points in the order indicated on the map via the conventional signs recognized all over the world. Once you reach the control points, which are called ‘flags’ (lanterne in Italian), you will need to ‘clock in’ in order to validate and win the race.

The aim of the race will be to reach the goal, but the winner will not always be the fastest competitor! The decisive factor is the best route chosen! You will be able to tackle this race, trying to reach the finish line as quickly as possible, but you will also have to pay close attention to the map, because making a mistake on the route means wasting precious time! Alternatively you can go slower and enjoy the scenery that surrounds you, admire the rich vegetation of the Valnerina, its picturesque panoramas and spend some quality time immersed in nature together with your family or friends.

Along the way you’ll encounter unexpected obstacles, such as rocky outcrops to climb over, narrow stretches to squeeze through and rivers to cross and it will be exciting and challenging to try to overcome these and other obstacles.

As a sport, orienteering will also enable you to achieve numerous benefits both mentally – because you’ll have to hone your logical skills, your sense of direction and the ability to make most accurate decisions in the shortest possible time –  and physically, because it’s a workout that stimulates various muscles, therefore improving tonicity, motor coordination and joint mobility. It will be an opportunity to escape from your daily routine with your friends or family or, why not, even alone? Whatever the case, a carefree, fun day is guaranteed!

Try our orienteering option in the municipality of Vallo di Nera. It’s a stimulating adventure and a great opportunity to put yourself to the test by taking on the challenge of a yet-to-be-discovered route!
