Feedback


It was a completely unique feeling, to find myself in the heart of beautiful Norwegian nature, on a perfectly groomed track, surrounded by thousands of people with a shared cause. What more could you want? I appreciated the excellent organization, quick transfers to and from the destination, as well as the services of the guide. I would recommend this experience from the bottom of my heart:)

FAQ

Instructions and requirements

First of all, you need to submit your application ASAP, as the race is in high demand and the accommodation and race capacity is limited! Early submiting can decrease the total price of the adventure. Go through your skiing gear and equipment and make a list of things you need to get, if needed. You may buy the gear there, and for very good prices, but shopping requires some time. We recommend that you focus on regular physical training, however, if you care more about your participation than your ranking, you will be fine regardless. It goes without saying that you are not a complete beginner. Additionally, you will need travel insurance and important personal necessities, such as medications etc. Waxing services are available in sports shops or directly at the place of accommodation. We will provide the waxing equipment, if needed. Just bring your own ski wax.

Do I have to participate in the race?

If you would prefer to enjoy the slopes or engage in other activities, no problem. This should be arranged in advance, since the start fee is paid individually for each person and it is non-refundable.
