The competition terrain is one of best terrains in Kainuu region. Orienteers will be
running in the fast and beautiful moor terrain of Tipasoja-Huhtikangas.  

Partly the same area was used in the WOC/KOW2013 event.

The highest altitude variation is 60 meters. In certain areas the curves are with small features.
The forest consists almost exclusively of pine forest of varying ages.The visibility is
mostly very good, in some seedling areas slightly poorer. Ground is solid and clean;
it is not stony. A few mires and ponds bring their own contribution to the orienteering
tasks and landscape.

The area has a comprehensive trail network. The most typical
for the orienteering area are esker of Selkämäki (altitude variation about 60 meters),
bigger and smaller kettles, little ponds with very clear water, several older and newer
trails and paths and very thin undergrowth of vegetation.

We offer several different kind of tracks and themes for the tracks and themes for the
tracks starting from long distance to more like middle distance.
