Terrain

Krajna vas – Veliki dol; Stages 1 & 2: Clearly one of the best orienteering areas in Slovenia. Not overly stony, intricate contours, surface allowing pretty fast running (for karst standards). This terrain is normally used in March for Lipica open, but we have had races here also in July (Xtremor, some years ago..). In July knee high grass may be covering  some parts of terrain.

Izola; Stage 3 (SPRINT): This location we still have to confirm, as we are waiting for final permission by local authorities. Izola is a little town on Slovenian coast, offering an amazing network of irregular streets, typical of Mediterranean.

Kazlje; Stages 4 & 5: Another nice forest on Kras plateau. Not as intricate as Krajna vas, but nevertheless amazing orienteering playground. Some open areas as well as patches of thicker vegetation.
