Middle and Long distance competition area
Famous from numerous big events – lately World Masters Orienteering Championships 2018 – Tisvilde Hegn is legendary in Danish Orienteering for its special vegetation and characteristic contour features.
The forest primarily consists of conifers, but beech is also found – primarily in the eastern parts. With its rapidly changing visibility – even in the early spring time – the terrain will challenge the competitors’ capabilities to alter their speed and navigate carefully in very detailed areas. The path network is well developed, making it fun even for our young and less skilled athletes.
