Lofoten Ultra-Trail will take place in week 22 every year. The tracks pass through an amazing scenery of mountain ridges, white beaches, green hills and grey cliffs – almost the entire time with the ocean in view or just meters from your feet.
The 12 km starts at Svolvær square and has a mix of tarmaq, gravel and trail. The mountain Tjeldbergtind (367 mas) offers a spectacular 360-degree panorama view of Svolvær, mountains and sea. This is a definately a scenic run that is highly recommended.
