Event descriptionORIENTEERING EXPERIENCE YOU WILL REMEMBER FOREVER. Run in the wilderness of Lapland 31.7.-5.8.2021 Ylläs, Kolari
Terrain description1st stage: One of the most mysterious places in Ylläs: Open bare rock, fast pine forest, cliffs and view to the fell of Kukas. Week starts with experience like no other. 2nd stage will be unforgettable: an open fell, grooves, fast pine forest and view to the majestic Ylläs fell while running to the finnish. The terrain at the top of Kukas is fast and the landscape epic. Is this the most beautiful and best orienteering terrain in Finland? 3rd: How does it feel to run a nice long orienteering in the fell? We mapped entirely one fell on a map so you can enjoy the full splendor of the fell: the slope, the peak, the swamp, the stream and the landscape. Some anthill may also be on the map. This is our favorite: speed, amazing scenery and challenge. 4th: Surfing among spruces, nice and demanding control points on the mountain slope and a small piece of open fell with a majestic view of the wilderness. The Tuomikuru tree line at the gates of the national park will surprise😉 5th: The week is crowned by terrain, where the pines turn into mountain birches and when punching on the horizon you can see Tunturijärvi and Kuertunturi. The fast terrain, where even reindeer thrive, is the awesome way to end the week.
