Orienteering is an activity that require navigational skills using a map and a compass to navigate from point to point. When ready to start you will receive a map on which small circles show the places to visit. These are physical or man-made features in the forest: the end of a ditch, the crossing of two paths, the junction of two watercourses, a knoll, a pit, etc. A small electronic device will allow you to attest that you have visited the point. At the end of the course, the controls are checked. The duration of the activity will not normally exceed two hours.
Beside the competition, training sessions are organised for those not acquainted with the activity. Compasses are available.
An annual event: Les Trois Jours de la Forêt de Soignes is organised by the orienteering clubs ASUB Orientation and Altaïr.
