ITINERARY

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, an attractive place in northern Norway and the finish line will be on the waterfront of Tromsø, the city of adventurers.

The itinerary will be an opportunity for participants to discover the magical and surprising landscapes of the Lyngen Alps. They will cross the landscapes of mountains and high mountains associated with the ubiquitous blue fjords. On the last kilometers, the competitors will see the Arctic Cathedral and they will 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 a dazzling Arctic brightness.
