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.
For the tenth anniversary of the Arctic Race of Norway, which will take place from 17 to 20 August, the world's most northerly cycling race is returning to the North Cape. The favourites will compete over four stages, all of which will be north of the Arctic Circle.
From Kautokeino, a cultural centre of the Sami people and a town hosting the riders for the first time, the race will cross Troms og Finnmark over four days with a sumptuous fourth and final stage from Kvalsund, which hosted the start of the last day in 2018, to North Cape. With this iconic finish, the Arctic Race is reviving its history and celebrating ten years of existence.
