The Arctic Triple // Lofoten Ultra-Trail® is the race that truly takes a grab on the entire group of islands from Moskenesøy to Austvågøy. Lofoten Ultra-Trail will take place in week 22 every year. The tracks pass through an amazing scenery of mountain ridges, white beaches, green hills and grey cliffs – almost the entire time with the ocean in view or just meters from your feet. The finish line is in the scenic city of Svolvær, surrounded by steep mountains by the harbor. Pure magic.
