Orientation workshop - A day in the wilderness Activity


A day in the countryside, in the Ile-de-France or in Burgundy, to discover orienteering and learn about this survival test.

A skill that everyone should master!

During a long day, you will be introduced to the main orientation techniques.

Whether you use a map and compass or nothing, at the end of your mini-training course, you will be able to find your way in space! And not to get lost in nature.

With simple and effective gestures, you will be able to find your way on a map and take a course. Orientation will no longer hold any secrets for you. Supervised by a pillar of the sector, you will be reassured about your ability to find the four cardinal points and your ability to make the right decisions to reach your landmarks.

Location: DORDOGNE or IDF

In one of the wildest corners of France! In the heart of a still preserved and living nature, you will learn to orientate yourself with all modern methods (map and compass) but also with the clues that nature will reveal to you. In the middle of the countryside, in a shady clearing, you will be initiated to the right techniques by one of the French referents of this know-how.

ORIENTATION can be learned!

We will be there to help you improve, master the basic techniques and give you our tips and know-how. Our advice, adapted to the different types of environments, will help you work on your "sense of direction". As a real coaching, you will also learn to manage your stress by giving you the keys to develop a good strategy.
