About

In the unique surroundings of the Lofoten Islands we are offering you the opportunity to do an amazing race – Lofoten Triathlon. The race is set every year in week 33. Lofoten Triathlon will take place in the town of Svolvær.

Distances:
– Olympic+: consists of 1000 M swim in the Svolvær harbor, 50 KM bike back and forth to Henningsvær and 12 KM run that goes over the mountain peak of Tjeldbergtinden (367 M above sea level).
– Half Extreme: 2 km swim in Svolvær harbour, 92 km bike leg around Gimsøy and a 21 km scenic run.
– Extreme: 4 km swim in the harbor of Svolvær, 196 km bike ride around Vestvågøy, Gimsøy and a short visit to iconic Henningsvær before you return to Svolvær. To finish it all with a bang – 45 km run that ends with 18 km terrain and two mountains and stunning views.
