Event descriptionA realy orienteering Festival with many unusal type of orienteering events.
Terrain descriptionOn the first two days the terrain will be a typical middle-high mountain, in certain parts the height differences are great. The forests contain mostly beech and oak trees and they are mostly well runable, in certain parts there are various rock formations. The last day competitions will be held on a terrain near Olaszfalu. The area is locally protected and it contains a lot of geological curiosities. The height differences are small but the flora and the runnability is very various. The so-called "Eperjes-hill" was used as pasture but since then it is covered with forests. The third day terrain is a mixture of a park forest and a middle mountain area.
