• 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.

Nu kryper vi äntligen ner under täcket. Målgången blev kring 8 minuter över 4, nu är vi allihopa möra trötta och frusna av att ha varit vakna och igång över ett dygn. Bedrift att ta sig i mål i ett 220 km långt lopp när man tidigare inte ens stått på startlinjen i ett skidlopp. #klivklivöverlev genom #nordenskiöldsloppet #redbullnordenskioldsloppet #redbull

Så väntar vi spänt på att se hur känslan är vid 184 km #klivklivöverlev #nordenskiöldsloppet #redbullnordenskioldsloppet #redbull


Majoriteten av TEAM JIEZZAH är i mål efter drygt 14 timmar!! All credd till fotograferna för tävlingen för denna snygga bild där pappa är femma i ledet! #RedBull #Nordenskiöldsloppet 👊🏽

Tidtagningsställena är fint upplysta, vi sitter i bilen vid 184 km och inväntar. Broder passerade nyss 170 km, vilket är den enda waypointen mellan där vi träffade honom sist och där vi nu väntar. 5 mil kvar när han kommer ner hit till oss, det är bara #klivklivöverlev #redbull #redbullnordenskioldsloppet #nordenskiöldsloppet

Thankyou @mariasblick for picture from skidserien. My boy Jim in action. What is more important in order to excel; the passion for doing it or the discipline to do it those days when the passion is not that strong? Tough question and probably you need a good blend of those two traits. But I Think you should really nurture the feeling of joy and playfulness, when you practice with children . Easter holiday has been great so far. Our friend @fridasan with family stayed overnight and we had barbeque, biked, played with our children, and saw the sci-fi arrival from 2016. Beware of the heptapods! I climbed onto my own and 3 neighbours roof in the afternoon to bring back the radio-driven airplane we played with. Next time we'll find a field! Today i skated in the afternoon, still great skiing in Lycksele. We ate momos for dinner over at @tbgcamilla and Ngawang. Now we are packed and ready to go to Ammarnäs tomorrow for a week in the mountains with snowmobiling, skiing xc and alpine and just enjoy winter in the spring. #xcski #längdskidåkning #skidor #ski #practicemakesperfect #lyckseleif #arrival2016 #runforfun #runnersofinstagram #instarun #instarunner #instarunning #löpning #löpare #nordenskiöldsloppet #redbull #trail #trailrunning #ultrarunner #ultrarunning #laufen #springa #rörelsevarjedag #runnerup #runningdad #onthemove #run #runner #quoteoftheday #picoftheday
