Also in the arctic it is now possible to run in the terrain, between the sea and mountains covered in snow. The orienteerers from the region have now started the training for Fjord-O-Arctic Midnattsolgaloppen 2013.

We are copying O-festivalen at Nesodden making a spesial arrangement for the youngest children. We call our arrangement “BARNEGALOPPEN”.
This means several different activities for children up to the age 0f 12.
Entry-fee of N kr 50 a day, 1 prize a day, attend as many activities as you like.
We have a seperat committee looking forward to make this a nice experience for the children!
Midnattsolgaloppen is a nice meetingplace for eager orienteers, who like the nice terrain and the midnight sun. But also the young generation likes to meet again, like the young ones in the picture on the summercamp in Sørreisa in 2012.
As Midnattsolgaloppen starts on a Saturday, it will be “Galoppkro” at Sørreisa hotel and meetingplace for the youngster in the park at the hotel after the race Saturday.
In the Sunday evening we are planning a Midnightsun hike. And invite you to swim in the arctic sea, as well.
Look forward to enjoyable orienteering in the Sørreisa and Harstad area. The terrain is surrounded by fjords and high mountains with snow on the top. It is mainly open woods, with nice curve-details and marshes. The runability is very good, with grass -and heather- ground. The wood is mainly open birch, but also parts with spruce (plantation)and pine. Smaller parts with lower runability caused by bushes.
The maps are made by Ivar Helgesen in Sørreisa, and Håvard berg in Harstad.
Sørreisa and Harstad is surrounded by beatiful nature, and there is lots of things to do in addition to orienteering.

The lucky winner is Stefan Schwbg. Congrats!
