Welcome to arrange the Kainuu Orienteering Week 2022 event!

Kainuu Orienteering Week is known as an orienteering and holiday week for the whole family and it is one of the largest sport events in Finland, which gathers 4000-10000 participants in Kainuu every year. Approximately 300-350 volunteers are running the event each year. There are a wide variety of tasks and most of them do not require any special experience.
