ORIENTEERING TERRAIN

The magical terrains of Joutenlampi, combined with the accommodation possibilities of Kajaani and Vuokatti, is one of the best combinations for the event venue of Kainuu Orienteering Week. The last time Kainuu O Week was at Joutenlampi in 2012.

The Joutenlampi area is Finland's most extensive moor terrain on orienteering maps. The fast-moving moor terrain and its curvy lines of ridges and depressions are the dream of many orienteers. There are so many variations of altitudes that even the deepest depressions affect route choices.

The trail and paths in the nearby area and the ridges between the ponds offer safe terrain for children and beginners. The terrain gets more difficult the further you go from the Competition Centre. On the longest courses, the open moor terrain sometimes changes to denser seedlings and juniper bushes. When the Competition Center is almost in the middle of the area, there is enough new orienteering terrain for each stage.
