MTB & E-MTB 85km | 1300m elevation

The route starts from Nuorgam towards the final destination of Utsjoki. It takes in the Alaköngäs museum road, then back along Tenojoki river towards Nuorgamintie and before rapidly ascending towards Kaldoaivin wilderness at at Njallavárri.  

55 kilometers of mountain biking through Kaldoaivi's unbroken wilderness offers a very special experience for competitors with tough climbs and rapid descents. The ground is mostly sand, some stones and marshy lands with the route following an old ATV track.   

After the wilderness section of the route, competitors face a long and gruelling climb to the top of Isonkivenvaara. After these heights it's a steep 200 metres downhill to the finish at Nuorgam K-Market. There you'll find your finisher shirt and food, drinks and good company waiting for you.

The 'weekend double' (Friday 85km + Saturday 130km) provides a challenge for even the most demanding warrior. During the 215 km route the rise in total is much over 3000 meters!
