Norrsken Orienteering: the English-speaking orienteering club in Stockholm

Norrsken Orienteering was founded in 2020 by two Asian students in Stockholm, aimed at international students and workers in the world city of Sweden.

Orienteering is a Scandinavian sport that is originally played in forests, but is now also played in urban environments. A navigation sport, it requires fitness in both body and mind.

Norrsken Orienteering is a member club of the Swedish Orienteering Federation (SOFT). Members of Norrsken Orienteering are automatically members of SOFT and therefore eligible for many other orienteering events in the country. Members who hold Swedish citizenship can also represent Sweden in international events.

Landrunning+ Stockholm Landrunning™

Stockholm gets more action with Landrunning+ series

Note: the series is currently suspended and under review of schedule. Stay tuned for updates!

Norrsken Orienteering co-organises the Landrunning Plus (Landrunning+) series in Stockholm, which includes 6 stages around Stockholm plus Landrunning World Series Stockholm Station in August 2021.

What is Landrunning?

Landrunning is a new sport that combines trail running and orienteering. As a landrunner, you choose your own way with a map. The route is not marked on the ground and you need to find the way yourself. All checkpoints are situated on trails and you don’t have to run off-trail into the forest.

Landrunning events include Landrunning+, which are local events franchised to local clubs, as well as Landrunning World Series, a series of high profile races organised by the Landrunning brand. Other activities and workshops may be organised by the local franchisee.

Norrsken Orienteering is proud to be the local co-organiser of Landrunning in Stockholm. A workshop was organised in September. Stay tuned for more activities to come!

The first stage will be on 28 November in Norra Djurgården. Learn more about the series and register at Be aware, the race is limited to 50 people.

Stockholm Landrunning™

[Rescheduled] FREE Landrunning™ workshop in Stockholm

Landrunning is a new sports discipline where the running route is not marked, but only the checkpoints. You’re given a map and you need to find your way to the next checkpoint. Situated at the intersection between orienteering and trail running, it’s a way to train your navigation skills and enjoy the landscape, exploring people and things along the way.
