And welcome to the northernmost professional cycling race in the world!

To be invited to an opening stage at Europe's northernmost mainland point is unique both for participants and TV viewers. During the race you will experience a landscape formed by the Arctic climate, open and friendly inhabitants, and businesses offering fish and agricultural products of a unique quality. The race finishes in the Arctic capital city of Tromsø, which is home to people from 140 countries and where the Arctic University of Norway has its main campus with 10,000 students. In this largest city of Northern Norway you find an academic powerhouse, blooming businesses and an urban environment, which has earned the city the nickname Paris of the North.

We will do our best to make the race a success for the participants and the organizers, and also a festive event for the guests and the locals. And we would like to show those who will be watching the race on TV that their next holiday destination is Northern Norway. With our pure and stunning scenery we can offer once-in-a-lifetime experiences. Here you can go fishing in the middle of the night, you can travel in and out of beautiful fjords, or go hiking in the mountains during daytime and enjoy urban life at night.
