The terrain is situated at the city of Ilulissat with a view of the Kangia (Ilulissat Ice Fiord) and the Disko Bay. It is an open, hilly area with bare rock, stones or topsoil covered with moss, lichen, crowberry, heather and grass. At this time of the year there is daylight 24 hours per day. The temperature will normally be between +5 and +15 0 C. The maps are orienteering maps based on photogrammetry in scale 1:10,000 and 1:15,000. Contour interval is 5 meters. The following races will be available:
28'th of June: Long distance courses according to age.
29th of june: Sprint race in the town of Ilulissat with courses according to age.
30'st of June and 1'nd of July: Midnight Race with courses at 5, 10, 15 and 20 km in the middle of the arctic night under the midnight sun.
2'nd of July evening: Party for participants.
The Midnight race is an individual event with a touch of the extreme. It takes place in a very
physically demanding terrain during the arctic night in a nearly deserted but grandiose scenery with no trees
and a lot of bare rock. Head lamps are not needed due to the midnight sun.
A travel to Ilulissat for AMO can be combined with a visit to to the capital of Nuuk where the O-club NASP have O-races.
