Embargoed areas

The areas marked on the maps are embargoed for all orienteering activities, unless specifically permitted by the organisers. Two types of embargoed areas exist (orange and red):

The red embargoed areas are full embargoed zones. They are out of bounds for all potential participants and team members, including competitors, team leaders, coaches, doctors, escorts, and any other person who through their knowledge of the terrain may influence the results of the competitions.

Following applies for red embargoed areas:

  • Potential participants and team members are not allowed to visit these areas with or without a map. This means no orienteering activity, no bike training session in the trail park or a leisurely activity of any kind is allowed.


The orange embargoed areas are partially embargoed. These areas can be visited without an orienteering map. Visitors have to stay on the public road network. Any orienteering activity is restricted and it is strictly forbidden to do route testing.

Following applies for orange embargoed areas:

  • No orienteering activity may take place in the area.
  • No training sessions may take place in the area.

Access to the Event Centre is allowed following the official road from the North. The road is shown in the map as the orange sector in the embargoed area for Long distance.
