The competition terrain (~ 250 km ²) is located centrally in Latvia, in the Engure and Tukums municipalities, and lies between the Gulf of Riga in the North, Ķemeri National Park in the East, motorway A10 (E22) Riga - Ventspils in the South and regional roads in the West. 20% of the proposed competition terrain has never been used for rogaining and orienteering events. Part of the terrain is the Ķemeri National Park, famous for its wild nature.  The rest of the terrain consists of  strings of small hills (113 - 165 m a.s.l.), swamps, a small river and lakes, forests, cuttings and young growths, meadows and fields, small settlements. There will be nature protection areas in the terrain that are out-of-bounds. Navigation and planning skills are critical to succeed!
