Funchal is the largest urban center on the island of Madeira, but a few kilometers away there are several urban and forest areas for orienteering training and discovery of new territories, from sea to mountain.
We propose eight maps with marked checkpoints, for you to compose your own orienteering challenges. The forest area maps, Montado do Pereiro and Chão das Aboboreiras, will also have checkpoints marked on the ground, for an extra experience during your visit to Madeira Island.
The maps can be pre-ordered through the following form HERE, and can be picked up from December 2, 2018, in Funchal, at a place to be indicated or at the event desk. The payment must be made when the maps are collected.
