The perfect combination of orienteering and survival: a challenge with map, compass and pen to be held among the wonderful trails of the park of Portofino, in Genoa city center or in the Ligurian villages!
Not a simple orienteering! The Orienteering Challenge is a team game in which you will be requested to reach predefined control points indicated on the map, only with the aid of a map and a compass. Once you reach the points, you will have to answer a question or perform a “survival” test, for example building a shelter, lighting a fire or finding paths.
A fun activity for groups that want to discover the territory by learning peculiar curiosities and techniques of the disciplines.

The Natural Park of Portofino, the northernmost protected area of the Western Mediterranean, shows some of the most mind-blowing and celebrated landscapes in the world. The Park includes the municipalities of Camogli, Santa Margherita Ligure, Portofino and, considering the contiguous area, also the municipality of Rapallo. Made up by giant conglomerate deposits overlaying limestone banks, the promontory features geomorphologic and microclimatic characteristics that, in a relatively small area, create extremely diverse environments.Here the fresh Apennine woods of the northern slope are only a short walk away to the sunny Mediterranean landscape and the steep cliffs. Just a few steps separate the different farming cultures associated with chestnut and olive groves, from the sea-related activities and traditional fishing. Protected since 1935, the Park hosts one of the largest floristic concentrations in the Mediterranean, a remarkable variety of birds and invertebrates, as well as an important historical and architectural heritage.
