Tampere is the largest inland city in the Nordic counties and it is located between two gorgeous lakes. Cafes, restaurans, shops, cinemas, adventure parks, museums, galleries – there is something for everybody in Tampere!


Two forest orienteering terrains (Särkänperä Viitapohja) are located withing 30 minutes driving distance from the city center of Tampere. The sprint arena Pispala is a unique city center neighbourhood on top of a ridge with many trails and beautiful views down to two lakes.

from the city center of Tampere to the institute by car

 Tampere is located in southern Finland some 170 km north of Helsinki, the capital of the country. It is within easy reach: less than two hours by train or by car from both coastal cities and even more conveniently accessible by air, thanks to Tampere’s good flight connections.


Welcome to Finland and to Tampere to the Junior World Orienteering Championships 2017! We are thankful for the responsibility we have been given together with the Finnish Orienteering Federation, the city of Tampere and Koovee Orienteering Club.
Unforgettable Nordic terrains and Athlete Village

We hope that in the year 2017, when Finland is celebrating its 100th year of independence, both the orienteers and spectators will have an unforgettable and amazing experience!
