Troll Ski Marathon

Saturday 2nd april 2022

the world’s longest one day classic ski race

Stay at Venabu for the best start to your race.

The classic and original race of 95km from Ven to Sjusjoen and the long course of 120km both start 600m from Venabu Fjellhotell.

The race route follows the “Troll’s Trail” from Venabygdsfjellet to Sjusjøen. It runs through stunning mountain terrain and birch forest at an altitude between 870 and 1030m asl.

Along the trail, Northern Europe’s original and ancient wild reindeer tribe lives, and wolves, bears, lynx and wolverines frequent the mountain areas regularly.

Benefits of your stay at Venabu:

  • starting line 200 meters from the hotel
