Welcome to Orienteering New Brunswick!

What is Orienteering?

Orienteering is a lifelong, family oriented competitive sport in which participants find their way to various checkpoints across diverse and unfamiliar terrain with the aid of a map and compass, the winner being the one with the shortest elapsed time.

Who can do it?
