Activities

One of our main goals is to develop Reistadløpet to become “more than just a ski race”. In this work we cooperate with different tour operators such as Destination Snowman and Visit Senja in order to be able to offer various activities and experiences to visitors to the Reistadløpet.

Below you will find a list of some of the activities available in this region and you do not have to go far to find them. The fairy-tale island of Senja is just a 30-minute-drive from the finish area at Bardufoss and is full of winter-wonderland experiences.

POLAR PARK

The world’s northernmost wildlife park for arctic animals such as bear, wolf, lynx, wolverine (glutton), musk, moose (elk), reindeer and deer in their natural habitat. The animals are socialized and visitors may enter their enclosures and maybe obtain a kiss from one of the wolves – an unforgettable experience.

NORDLYSOPPLEVELSER

Many people come to the northern part of Norway just to watch the Northern Lights. The best period for doing this, is from September to March. Even so, you may be lucky enough to see it also around the time of the Reistadløpet.

You will find further information about activities and various experiences on the web-pages of Destination Snowman,  “Nord-Norsk Reiseliv, Midt-Troms” and “Visit Senja

NB! The web-page of “Nord-Norsk Reiseliv” is under construction and will appear much better to navigate in the first part of 2019.
