Reistaloppet | 2021
The Schedule. Your travel and racing program will consist of the following:
Wednesday, April 7th:
You will take a plane from wherever your closest airport is to Bardufoss and then transfer by bus to Setermoen (about 30 minutes), where you will be able see the Saturday start line of the Reistadløpet. You will take possession of your rooms and have your first meal in your hotel.
Thursday, April 8th and Friday, April 9th:
You will have a buffet breakfast at the hotel and then you can spec out the course either on skate skis or classic skis. You will look over the start of the race. The place where you will pick up your race bibs is only 200 meters from your hotel. Setermoen is a little town with very few services. For that reason, the noon day lunch will be something you will do on your own at your hotel. The afternoon is for rest and for preparing your gear. You will eat together in the hotel each evening. On Friday, just before dinner, you will go obtain your race bibs.
