Distances: 580 miles
Difficulty: Difficult terrain with longer, steeper hills

In this ultimate test of endurance, riders will battle the elements for 580 miles/ 930km under 24 hours of daylight in the Arctic. 

This self-supported ultra-endurance stage race is the first of its kind. It’s more than a race to the finish — it’s about a meaningful interaction with people and place. You’ll be pushing your limits, but not without taking in some of the endless opportunities to learn about and interact with Icelandic culture.

The Westfjords may be Iceland’s most remote region, but scattered around the long stretches of unpredictable terrain you will find vibrant villages, family farms, hot pots and all the people and tradition that make the Westfjords such a unique corner of the world. The WFWC is inspired by this place, where nature shapes people and their way of life. The journey will challenge you to adapt and persevere through harsh winds, long climbs and loose gravel that will test your limits. But true to life in the Westfjords, there are always welcoming respites between the long stretches of travel where you can recover in a hot pot and chat with locals over coffee and a warm meal.
