Norway is well known for its unique coastal line, with alpine mountains diving into beautiful fjords. This landscape provides the perfect arena for an international stage race on road bike. In 2021 the Arctic Race of Norway will be back to Troms County with a Grand Depart in the Paris of the North - Tromsø. After its first step outside of Norway, in Finland during stage two, the race will go from Finnsnes and Senja to the Alpine Station of Målselv. The last stage starts in Gratangen and the big final takes place in a city circuit of Harstad, where Thor Hushovd won the first edition of the race, back in 2013.
