The municipality of Montendre and the association Serial Azimut Saintongeais, with the help of the French orienteering federation, have set up an orienteering area at Lake Baron-Desqueyroux.
This activity and its functioning are rather simple. Like an orienteering race, the principle is to walk from a map in order to find, while moving, checkpoints marked by punching beacons installed here and there, in places that are more or less easy to detect, at the bottom of a slope, in the middle of brambles or ferns, in the shade of a pine tree or by a stream...
The aim is to develop a sense of direction and location and to practice an outdoor sporting activity. The courses are suitable for a wide audience. With friends, family, schools and colleges, leisure centres, everyone will be able to take part in the various tours. Four tours have been defined, with different levels of difficulty, depending on whether you are more or less experienced in this activity.
Maps of the routes are available at the Town Hall during opening hours, at Mysterra, the 7 Labyrinths Park and online here : www.club-co17.com/index.php/les-eso-ppo/ppo.html#montendre
Departures are from Mysterra, the 7 Labyrinths Park.
