Based on booking patterns from previous years, it is likely that around 18,000 orienteers will experience the wilderness and adventures that O-Ringen Värmland 2017 offers.

The secretary general of O-Ringen Värmland, Christina Gabrielsson, is pleased with the number of participants so far:

-We are very happy that so many people have discovered and signed up for O-Ringen Värmland 2017. The number is higher than we expected. We believe that our strong focus on the competition conditions, together with the compact O-Ringentown camping, are attractive to our participants. 

Over 1,000 of 2,400 camping lots are booked, and camping lots with electricity are sold out. For those looking for private homes to rent, the number of available options will increase during the coming weeks. You find them at oringen.se.

-We are confident that our concept will be appreciated and work smoothly for the participants, Christina Gabrielsson concludes.
