Orienteering course in the Central Andes near Santiago, Chile (2 days)


  • Enjoy a 2-day orienteering course in the Andes of Chile.
  • Learn different aspects of orientation, from using a compass to cartography.
  • Located near the city of Santiago.


It is easy to get lost in the mountains or take an incorrect path along a route. Hence, why orientation is a skill that must be learned, practiced and perfected in order to ensure a safe and successful expedition. That is why I am happy to offer this 2-day orienteering course in the central Andes of Chile, near Santiago.

Throughout this course, we will focus on cartography and orientation. You will be taught how to design and follow a route in the mountains safely and securely.

The course will consist of one day in the mountains and one day focusing on theory in a classroom.

Some of what we will cover during this course includes the following.

  • Basic concepts of cartography

  • Natural orientation

  • Reading topographic maps

  • Orientation with natural elements

  • How to use a compass and follow a map

  • How to read and interpret terrain

  • Planning and executing an ascent using different techniques

To participate on this course, you should be in good physical condition.

As important as the climbing itself knowing about proper orientation is very important in the mountains. So, if you would like to learn how to properly navigate your way through the mountains during an expedition, just send a request. I look forward to hearing from you and guiding you.

I also offer a 5-day basic level mountaineering course, which also takes place in the Andes, near Santiago.
