Viken County

It is a great pleasure to welcome you all to the Orienteering World Cup 2023 that will be held in Viken County, in the south-east part of Norway. Viken has a lot to offer, whether you like hiking in the forests, skiing in the mountains, enjoying our beautiful coastline, or visiting one of our many charming towns and cities. 

Orienteering is a sport with long traditions in Viken County, particularly in the south-eastern parts. I don’t want to brag, but we take great pride in the fact that some of the best orienteers in the world come from towns such as Halden, Fredrikstad, Sarpsborg and Mysen, in our county.

Several major orienteering competitions have been held in these parts of the county, formerly known as Østfold County. The Norwegian O-festival – Norway’s largest orienteering event – was hosted by Sarpsborg in 2016, the Norwegian Orienteering Championship was hosted by Halden in 2017, and finally, the World Orienteering Championship was hosted by Østfold County in 2019. 

Now we look forward to welcoming back athletes, support teams and orienteering enthusiasts from around the world to our beautiful county, and a week of entertainment, great sporting achievements, and good companionship.

Chair of Viken County Council
