BaliséOr: permanent orienteering course

Discover the art of orienteering on the BaliséOr permanent orienteering course in Les Rousses Fort.

To be practised in trainers in summer or snowshoes in winter, the course allows visitors to try out or perfect their orienteering skills and is open throughout the year in the magnificent and imposing setting of Les Rousses Fort. Suitable for both children and adults, 5 courses for different ability levels are on offer.

The innovative course is France's first permanent orienteering facility with an electronic timing system. Users of the course can have fun comparing their results as a family or with those of François Gonon, World Relay Orienteering Champion in 2011.
