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.

Compare urban orienteering with running and sprint orienteering

Urban orienteering is a longer form of sprint orienteering that takes place in city environments. Orienteering is different from running in that you choose your own route to the next checkpoint.
