Terrain

So far OOcup has been all about karst, but in 2022 it’s time for full Nordic experience. The five stages of OOcup/2022 will take place in the finest terrain that can be found around Umeå in Västerbotten county, Sweden. We feel privileged and thrilled to have a chance to organize OOcup in these areas and to bring YOU here! It is going to be GREAT! 

Possible control point on Stage 1, Tavelsjö

Stage 1, Tavelsjö:  beautiful nordic forest with a nice lake nearby. Technically not an easy stage at all, but perhaps the easiest of all 5. An ejoyable introduction into the week!

Stages 2 and 3, Hössjö: this area is so amazing that we decided to have two stages here. Large sections of very detailed terrain exchanging with sections with only few details. No paths. The best possible place to demonstrate your O-skills and crash your competition ;). Btw. this terrain has never been used for orienteering before OOcup!

Stage 4, Skravelsjö: terrain with very detailed slopes and ridges full of rocky formations. Large sections with fewer details as well as some thickets. Below is the sample of the old map. Used for Oringen in 1997 …

Stage 5, Klabböleanother beautiful area where extremely detailed slopes exchange with some “empty” forest with few details. This terrain was used for Swedish national championship in 2010!
