Competition area consists the very best orienteering areas in Puolanka and overall in Kainuu region. Orienteering area has been used two times before in 1985 and 2000 Kainuu Orienteering Week. Competitions will be held in two different kinds of terrain types. Stages 1. and 2. will be run in pineforest area which is very fast to run and there is good runability. The stages 3. and 4. offers for orienteers very challenging orienteering in great scenery´s and hill areas which are covered with old spruce forest.

Children´s tracks are held every day in pineforest area where you can find plenty of footpaths and little ponds which will make orienteering easier.
