• The world’s toughest and longest ski race.

    Nordenskiöldsloppet is a 220km ultra race and a completely new type of challenge for modern skiers. On the 15th of April 2017 participants will leave Purkijaur in a race dating back to the 19th century. With a track above the arctic circle, the contestants will be put up to a real tough challenge.

  • The world’s toughest and longest ski race.
  • A 200km’s long challenge.

    After having been in hibernation for 132 years the competition is arranged on a track as close to the original from 1884 as possible. It stretches across Luleälvens small gathering of lakes, a 220km’s long scenic route. The race is held in a classical style and along the course there is plenty of stations with drinks and food.

  • A 200km’s long challenge.
  • Historical race back after 132 years.

    In 1884 polar explorer Erik Adolf Nordenskiöld held a competition to prove that it was possible to ski long distances in a short time. It became one of the world’s first, toughest and longest races. Pavva-Lasse Nilsson Tuorda won, having skied 220km’s in 21 hours and 22 min’s. On the 15th of April 2017 you have the chance to ski in his tracks.

  • Historical race back after 132 years.

Ett suddigt filmklipp från gårdagens glödvandring. Ursäkta svordomen i slutet 😅 Men återigen så är inget omöjligt, vilket känns som en bra tanke att ha med sig i vinter! #glödvandring #ingentingäromöjligt #nordenskiöldsloppet #mentalförberedelse #rivercountry

Yes my elbows were aching and I was so tired I barley couldn't walk after crossing the finish line after 200 km skiing. Would I do it again? Probably. At least that's what I told the reporter... #deluxeturer #deluxestund #nordenskiöldsloppet #aclima #Anywhereunderwear #bergans #bergansofnorway #blizeyewear
