In the children's orienteering clinic children’s get to know basics of the orienteering. After this, they have opportunity to try orienteering in labyrinth. 
In the orienteering clinic for adults, orienteering-related issues are discussed a little more extensively than with children. We learn to read a map and use a compass. After that, you have the option to navigate the easy, path-based D track, about 1 km long, or the easy C track, about 2 km long, or even go on self-guided tracks (B and A tracks).

DIY control points are intended for orienteering enthusiasts. Departures at 17-18.  The A and B tracks are located in the beautiful scenery of the Ruka fell area. Do-it-yourself control points are available free of charge at the orienteering clinic, at other times maps are for sale at Ruka Info in the Kumpare shopping center.
