The Funchal Mountain Club (CMOF) promotes the Madeira Orienteering Festival a sportive event held between from 9th to 12th February. Orienteering is a recently discovered sport in Portugal, but has already been around as an organised sporting activity for over 100 years (the rst sporting activity of Orienteering is reputed to have been held in Bergen, in Norway, in 1897), and is also one of the sporting activities to have seen the most spectacular growth in recent years. Here, the competition blends well in with leisure, within a space that provides permanent contact with Nature. Each person chooses his or her rhythm, depending on the personal challenges set, discovering his or her real self while, at the same time, having the opportunity to meet new people and make new friends.
