Tatry /Tatras/ Orienteering 2019

We invite all orienteering fans to try new maps and interesting terrains in our most visited national park. The third year of the race in the Tatra National Park will be very interesting and perhaps the best of all three. It will probably be the most varied in comparison to the previous races. Each stage will be put on a different map! The first stage is in the High Tatra National Park and Pieniny National Park. We added an extra stage that will be held in the centre of the event.


In these races we will cross the Tatras. Participants have the opportunity to visit the most famous places of Tatry and the Pieniny National Park. Compared to last year race, there will be significantly less puddles and more hills. We invite everyone but note that we have a limited number of 1000 racers

Program - 5 stages - 2x middle, 1x sprint, and 2 x long courses

Map sample - Stage number 1. - Scale 1:10 000, E 5m,
The most hilly stage of all. A demanding alpine forest with difficult orientation. A favorite area of ski resort Bachled valley and wider surroundings. There are erosion gullies in a part of the terrain. There is possibility to use a new cabin lift to get to the starting point which is situated on the top of the hill. Beautiful views of Belianske Tatras and Pieniny. It is a very popular locality in the Tatras especially after opening the Tree top walk . Do not miss this stage because it is currently a highly visited tourist destination and in the future we probably will not be able to repeat this race again for its heavy traffic.
