Location

Venue and Access

Aguiar da Beira is a small County in the centre of Portugal. With an impressive forested area, lovely sights, historical monuments and tasty regional gastronomy, Aguiar da Beira met Orienteering for the first time in 2014. Since then, many have been the races held in the area and many Orienteers have visited us, both for competition and training camps.

JWOC TOUR Event Office

In all days, JWOC TOUR Event Office will be located at the competition arenas.

All TOUR participants must wear the oficial Bib number, so you need to go to the Event Office prior to your first stage.

ARENA QUINTA DAS LAMEIRAS

Driving to the Arena Quinta das Lameiras parking: Organizers will set arrows from the Event Center to Arena Quinta das Lameiras parking. Contrary to the situation in Carapito, it doesn’t matter which way you arrive to Quinta das Lameiras. Parking arrows will be placed on road N229 and will be visible to drivers coming from West and from East. On site, please follow instructions from Organizers. Do not park on the side of the road unless you are asked to do so.

Parking to Arena: Walking distance between 800 and 1200 meters. The way from parking to Arena will be marked using arrows.

ARENA CARAPITO

Driving to the Arena Carapito parking: To reach Arena Carapito parking it is not mandatory, but preferred, to follow Organizer’s instructions (arrows from the Event Center to Arena Carapito), otherwise there is a high risk of overcrowd the small village of Carapito. Preferably arrival to Arena Carapito parking should be done from West side – at N330 road, drivers must take the exit “Eirado” & “Carapito”, as indicated by Organizer’s arrows.

Parking to Arena: Walking distance between 1000 and 1400 meters. The way from parking to Arena will be marked using arrows.
