    The extreme challenge of cross country skiing 220km across the Nordic wilderness attracted a record breaking amount of sign-ups for the 2018 edition of Red Bull Nordenskiöldsloppet. Now the date for next year is set. The start will take place on March 30, 2019 and the registration will open on June 12.

  • Get ready. Date for 2019 is set.
  • 2018 race in toughest conditions so far

    Continuous snowfall transformed the 220 km of this year’s Red Bull Nordenskiöldsloppet into an extreme journey. Fresh snow kept on covering the tracks and hence, conditions were slow. Only about half the starting field with just under 400 registered skiers saw the finish line.

  • 2018 race in toughest conditions so far
  • 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 24th of March 2018 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 historical race.

    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 24th of March 2018 you have the chance to ski in his tracks.

  • A historical race.
