Lillehammer Troll Ski Marathon saturday April 18th 2020

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. The terrain offers variations without any technically difficult sections. The course of this race can be compared to Vasaloppet but with a track crossing a beautiful mountain plateau.
