Intensive orienteering course for adults

The course is aimed at those who are completely new to orienteering or know a little but want to get better at reading maps! During two intensive days, we go through the basics of orienteering, test the theory in practice, learn to use compass and map, go through different analysis tools for further development, and more.

The course is held on a weekend in the spring. More information for 2024 will follow.

Trainings at Hellasgården on Tuesdays and open trainings at the club house in Lissma on Saturdays

Hellas Orienteering has training sessions every Tuesday, usually at Hellasgården's sauna and gym at 6 pm. For more information, email info@hellasorientering.se.

We also have activities at our nice club house in Lissma. If possible an even better starting point for orienteering.
During winter and pre-season we meet there every Saturday at 10 am. Good opportunities to try orienteering. Maybe you are a multisport or fitness athlete who wants to try orienteering. Here you can take the chance to hang out with talented orienteers and see and learn "out there"!

We currently have a lovely group of interested young people and parents as well as other adults!
