N60 Norwegian Challenge

Norway

A relaxed beach-side vacation isn't always enough to satisfy the thrill seekers of the world. If you want to push yourself to the limit by including an adrenaline pumping experience in your next superyacht holiday, check out this list of extraordinary challenges for inspiration:

1. N60 Norwegian Challenge

The competition: Set at the heart of Norway’s snow covered wilderness the N60° Norwegian Challenge takes place in a land that is synonymous with adventure and exploration. Departing from Hemsedal in the centre of Norway, the 100-mile course winds south to Geilo through the beautiful but untamed region where Scott prepared for his ill-fated trip to the Antarctic.

There are three days of training before the competition that includes learning how to ride a bike across the snow, honing cross-country skiing skills and learning how to ski tour.

The course is made up of four gruelling stages. On the first morning competitors will set out to complete 15 miles of ski touring. But don’t be fooled, this is not a leisurely day on the slopes, a lot of the course is actually on a incline and competitors are provided with a special binding to make “skiing” uphill possible. After day one, the first night is spent camping in tradition Nordic lavvu tents. Day two of the challenge is 26 miles of fat-biking across snowy, unstable terrain. Back in the skis on day three for 26 miles of cross-country skiing and then for the final day it’s another 26 miles of running and trekking.

The prize: If you have a competitive streak you will be competing for the title of overall champion, but there is a Sprinter’s Jersey for the winner of each day.

All competitors can celebrate their achievements at a Gala Diner that takes place on the final evening

The cost: £4,750 (Including flights)

How to get there: Perfect for anyone discovering the Norwegian fjords on board a superyacht, The event takes place in the centre of Norway, about five hours drive from Stavanger and Lyseford, three hours from Rosendal and two from Lofthus.
