Pure Arctic Madness!


Reistadløpet was arranged for the first time in 1958 and is one of the ski races in Norway with the richest traditions. The race was established in memory of Colonel Ole Reistad, He was a great skier and athlete well-known for having led the Norwegian ski patrol to victory in the Olympic championships in St. Moritz in 1928.

Reistadløpet, at a latitude of 69° North, is the northernmost of all the races in the Visma Ski Classics.  There are two different races to choose from – one being 50 kilometres long and the other 34 kilometres long, both running through a stunning arctic scenery from Setermoen to Bardufoss. There is also a race for the children – “Barnas Reistadløp”.
