Finnmarksløpet AS

Europes longest sled-dog race

 The race starts Saturday in week 10 every year from Alta centrum. We run a show start with official opening, speaker, music and thousands of audience in Altas main street for all classes.

The start begins at 11.00. First up is the 14-dog class, then the 6-dog junior class and finally the 8-dog class. Be a part of the show, and cheer for over 1,000 huskies and their mushers as they start the ultimate winter challange, Finnmarksløpet.
