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 most difficult orienteering area in France. World cup final 2006 has been organised in this area. It is one of the best area to train technically. It is necessary to be a good orienter well prepare physically. It is a hard terrain to run where orienteering is very difficult. It is recommanded to stay there not more than half a week. It is not far away from Le Caylar or Fontainebleau on motorway (3h driving). It is also possible to join Lit et mixe by car in the middle of the week (5h driving).
Terrain descriptionOystein Krystianssen: "I visited the terrains around Clermont-Ferrand in the winter of 2002, and truly it is some of the most demanding terrains I have ever run in. Excellent maps and detailed terrain in the slopes around the vulcano Puy de Dme makes this a perfect place for technical orienteering training. And running in the vulcanic area near the Volvic-source is quite special, fetching controls when steam comes out of the ground is really surreal".
