Are you on the hunt for a gift that will provide an exhilarating experience for the two adventure enthusiasts in your life? Or maybe you would jump at the chance to exercise both body and mind alongside a companion in the great outdoors? Either way, this experience is a chance to get your brain juices flowing, marvel at Britain’s idyllic countryside and enjoy each other’s company.
A flexible sport, suitable for all ages and levels of fitness, the aim of orienteering is to navigate around a number of control points marked on a specially drawn map in the quickest time possible. With a choice of three locations in Northern England’s natural beauty spots, a team of two will work together in order to discover the swiftest route.
The session will begin with a briefing and introduction by a highly experienced instructor, who will advise all best orienteering tips and tricks. As a result of their time and energy invested in the open air, your instructors have designed each course to maximise fun, thought and friendship at all times. Don’t worry if you’ve never orienteered before or aren’t much of a sportsman, as you will be provided with all the essential information and can take the course at the speed and pace best for you. Whether you select speed or brain power as your weapon of choice, just make sure it’s your team that are victorious!
Once you are fully prepped, you will also be supplied with a map, compass, pen and 3 challenging courses, in order to reach your destinations in record time. Your team must utilise each other’s unique skills and work together in order to travel between different marked sections on your map, putting your new found skills to the test! Each control (marker) comes with letter which you must retrieve as evidence that you have reached each point. Once you reach the end of your route, the clock will be stopped and your time will be revealed. The fastest team wins!
