Orienteering course

A full-scale paper chase!

Alone or with your family, for fun or for competition, come and enjoy nature!

With a map, your mission will be to find 15 hidden markers around the lake and solve the questions on each one.

Three themes are possible:

  • The culture and heritage of the Landes (only available in Aureilhan)

  • Eco-citizenship (environment, pollution, food waste …)

  • Nautical (on the water, in a kayak, pedalo, Stand Up Paddle or with your own equipment)

Length of route : 3 kilometres (around 1h on land and 1h30 for the nautical version)

You will have to be quick thinking and rapid for this full-on puzzle, which will take you to some remarkable places. Rambling and discovery are also an integral part of this sport, which is accessible to everyone.

Ideal for all the family, this enjoyable and sporting orienteering course will teach you about our surrounding environment and its ecology.

It is up to you to find the markers and the correct answers!

New this year : a course about the history of Mimizan and one nautical !
