Terrain descriptionThe Rautavaara airfield terrain is fast runnable pine forest with excellent visibility. There are depressions and ridges in certain parts of the competition area which will slow down navigation. The network of paths close to the airfield will help orienteers in the junior classes. The Tahko sprint event will be held in the holiday resort area. The terrain around Tahko mountain is detailed and demanding. The elevation differences will challenge competitors in the main competition classes. However, the paths around the ski slopes will ease navigation for orienteers in the junior and senior classes.
