Lillehammer Troll Ski Marathon saturday April 14th 2018
Probably the world’s most scenic cross country ski course. Challenge yourself on XC skis.
Lillehammer Trollski Marathon takes place in april every year when the days are longer and the temperature rather mild. Choose between 120 K, 95 K or 45 K and enjoy skiing long distance in the heart of the Norwegian mountains. The marathon starts in Venabu, Ringebufjellet and ends in Sjusjøen.
