Orienteering at Idre Fjäll

Discover Idre Fjäll

Orienteering at Idre Fjäll is great, no matter your level. Enjoy the silent beauty of the forests and the mountains, that lets you focus on the map and the views.


Idrefjäll Week is a recurring event that attracts orienteering enthusiasts from near and far to the beautiful Idre Fjäll. It's a week filled with competitions and camaraderie for both experienced athletes and beginners. Throughout the week, participants can enjoy a variety of different races, including the Swedish Championships Ultra for Juniors, Seniors, and Veterans. The highlight is the Idrefjäll Classic 3-day competition, where participants are challenged with middle-distance races and a final pursuit start for certain classes. For those who haven't pre-registered, open classes are available every day.

An exciting addition in 2023 is the introduction of Precision Orienteering (PreO), which allows participants to test their accuracy and skill. Idrefjäll Week is an opportunity to take part in competitions, improve one's orienteering abilities, experience the beautiful nature, and create memories with fellow orienteers.

Idrefjäll Week is a week filled with excitement, challenges, and joy for all who love the sport of orienteering!
