Event descriptionTraining opportunity for clubs who wants to try new Orienteerings experiences during winter time. I am organising training camps for groups (Car rental, accomodations, food, maps,...) The hotel is just outside Le Caylar an old village situated in a wonderfull big map (A2). Possibility to train from the hotel to one of best map in France. Other intresting areas are close from the hotel (max. 30km on motorway). From december to end of february, snow is comming very few during the winter (max. 5cm) and melts very fast (~2/3 days). It is a wonderfull region for long training session in mountain bike and running. Check all maps on the O-france page:
