The world's hardest MTB ride

700 tough kilometers. Unique wilderness. Blood Sweat and tears. Friendship for life.

Ishavskraft OF700 km is the ultimate MTB challenge and adventure of a bike race.

Ishavskraft Offroad Finnmark 700 km is voted by many as the world's hardest mountain bike race. You cycle through wilderness and the Sami core area, which has been used for several thousand years for hunting and fishing.

We have created a ride that combines a unique nature experience, and a sporting challenge that we are sure you will not find anywhere else. Endless expanses, marshes, rivers and meters of altitude that you wouldn't think exist in Finnmark, but which you can see in the fantastic light Finnmark has around the clock at this time of year.

The 700 kilometer trail is cycled continuously from start to finish.

The route runs through five municipalities and stops at 10-12 checkpoints. To be able to carry out such an effort, all cyclists must get enough nutrition and rest. At Offroad Finnmark, we attach great importance to this. That's why we have arranged all the checkpoints with hot and cold food, drinks and rest facilities.

Offroad Finnmark 700 km is carried out in a terrain that is the heart of the wilderness. Checkpoints are located in mountain huts and village houses and staffed by our volunteers.

Our 300 volunteers are ready to give you care and preparedness that you won't find anywhere else. They ensure that our participants get a unique offer such as technical service, bike washing, and anything else you may need help or assistance with. The only thing our volunteers think about is making sure that our cyclists get as optimal an experience as possible. You cannot help but be touched by their care.

Age limit 18 years. (If you turn 18 in the year of the event, you can participate.)
