This is your definitive guide to Orienteering in Northern Ireland!

Orienteering is the art of navigating your way round a series of points. The maps are large scale with more detail than you would find on an OS map. The idea is to do it at your best speed but it is also a great way to take a walk with a purpose and when you are ready, get you off the beaten track.

Orienteering in Northern Ireland provides the opportunity to view some spectacular scenery from the woodlands of Castle Ward Demesne in Co Down to the banks of the River Roe in Limavady.

Various events are staged throughout the year by the local clubs. The evening events in the summer are a good way to get out and about. These are particularly good for beginners with lots of help on hand to get you started and courses suitable for all the family.

Also check out the list of activity operators. These activity centres will offer orienteering as part of an action-packed adventure day at a reasonable cost.

An alternative option to try out one of Northern Ireland's many Ecotrails. These provide an opportunity for young people to develop an awareness, appreciation and understanding of, and responsibility to, their local natural and built environment by taking part in an environmental trail linked to the sport of orienteering.
