Live in and around Jokkmokk:
If you’re in the lucky position to be in Jokkmokk and want to follow the feat live on site and along the track, the best places are of course the start and finish areas.
Besides that, the turning point in the mountain village of Kvikkjokk-ÅrreNjarka (km 99) can easily be reached by car. The same goes for the checkpoint in Njavve (km 88 and km 110). Driving to the turning point from Jokkmokk will take a little more than one hour. Between ÅrreNjarka and Njavve one can even spot the skiers from the road. If you want to stay closer to Jokkmokk, the checkpoint in Purkijaur (km 198) is a good place to stand and watch and so is the race’s final lap around the Talvatis lake in central Jokkmokk.
It’s no problem to follow the race from your computer or smartphone if you rather stay home in your sofa or can’t be in Jokkmokk.
