Return to the spirit of Trail in the Lyngen Alps
The Lyngen Alps
The Ultra NORWAY Race takes place in the north of Norway, 350 km north of the Arctic Circle. The start will be in the Lyngen Alps and the finish line will be on the waterfront of Tromsø, the city of adventurers.
Participants will discover surprising and magical scenes, while crossing landscapes of high mountains dotted with prevalent blue fjords. On the last kilometers, the competitors will see the Arctic Cathedral and cross the iconic Tromsø Bridge with stunning views over the city.
In July, we will benefit of the midnight sun and we will see the beautiful scenery of northern Norway in the dazzling Arctic brightness.
