Event descriptionNuuk O-fest, is the annual international orienteering event for Nuuk. In 2015 it is at the same time the “North Atlantic Orienteering Championships” (thus NATLOC). It is a three day event, with two warm-up days before offering a total of 5 days of orienteering. There will not be many visitors from outside Greenland, so those who come is taken well care of. They always have a good time. It is possible to combine this event with ICE-O in Iceland, the weekend before.
Terrain descriptionThe terrain is all mountain (no trees), combines rock face and grass, with a large number of boulders and almost no paths. Great views almost everywhere!
Training possibilities2 warm-ups.
Holiday activities,nature,hiking etc.There will be time to go on a boat trip, which is strongly recommended. Destination depending on weather, but most interesting are the icefjord and the small settlement of Kapisillit. There will be a guided hike to the top of mount Ukkusissat, where you will get to enjoy a snack with a fantastic view. And there will be a guided city walk in the old town.
