"Croeso" is the Welsh word for "welcome" ... so welcome to the website for CROESO 2012, the Welsh international orienteering event, based around the Victorian coastal resort town of Aberystwyth.

Aberystwyth is located on the west coast of Wales and is a popular holiday destination combining the best of outdoor activities, stunning scenery and award winning beaches. It is easily accessible via a network of road, rail and bus links.

The town overlooks Cardigan Bay, a haven for bottlenose dolphins and Atlantic grey seals.
