Orienteering courses around the Thésauque Lake

Here is a sport that can be practiced freely and is accessible to everyone. Fun and very pleasant , alone or in a team, this activity will seduce all the family by its ease and its originality. A sporty moment to enjoy in an preserved natural environment.

 

What are orienteering courses?

Orienteering is a sport which makes mind and body work. Indeed, it is necessary to think before you act!

 

The orientation signposts are permanently located on the banks of the Thesauque lake situated between Nailloux and Montgeard. There are 45 in total that have been installed around the lake. 4 different courses have been created for your pleasure. Beginners can begin with the easy course, and the most experienced will find some benefit with the difficult course. So, it is possible to play with friends and family with young children (as from 7 years).

 

How to play?

Meet at the main carpark where the game starts, at the entrance to the site. An information board will help to show you how to use the orienteering course at your own liberty. On the map that you have previously retrieved from the Tourist Office in Nailloux or from the “Camping du Lac de la Thésauque”, you will see the numbers 1 to 19, 21 or 23. The aim of the game is to find the permanent signposts that correspond to these numbers, using the symbols on the map to help you. Be careful! To add to the challenge of the game, the numbers on the map do not correspond to the numbers on the signposts! As soon as you have found the right signpost, hole-punch - the paper (see the table opposite) against the corresponding number.

 

Ex: Number 1 corresponds to the signpost with the number 56.
