Orienteering is a navigational sport using a map, and usually a compass. It involves moving from point to point over unmarked terrain, along a planned route. Using the map the participants find tagged control points. During competitions, the participants race against the clock to complete the course.
In both summer and winter the Parc du Pilat has a landscape that offers a wide variety of vegetation, ideal for orienteering. This sport can be practiced on foot, on mountain bike, on cross-country skis, on snowshoes and on horseback by everyone(families, sports people), from beginners to experts.
