Tromsø SkyRace® at 69 degrees North takes you on an arctic trip from the city of Tromsø to the most scenic wilderness area. The first ascent is over Tromsdalstind mountain, down a wild valley crossing rivers and up to the very technical Hamperokken ridge.
An exposed and sometimes narrow ridge leads to the summit of Hamperrokken at 1,404m altitude. A technical downhill to an alpine lake is followed by a wild open valley leading back to the last big climb up Tromsdalstind. The final section of the race includes another technical downhill and a smooth trail to finish back to an enthusiastic welcome in Tromsø.
