Details for the official Lapland Arctic Ultra 2025 training course are now confirmed.

I want to take this opportunity to say a very big Thank You to Per Johansson from Rimfrost Adventures who held the course the last three years. He always did a great job – making the course part of the overall adventure and getting excellent feedback from our athletes. Due to other committments next winter Per had early on communicated that he would not be able to organise the course next winter.

The really good news is that our new course organiser is Olov Jonsson from Trollkraft Adventures. Olov has been part of Per’s team for the past three courses. So, he knows exactly what to expect and how best to prepare the participants. Like Per, Olov is from the region which helps in preparations and which means that the participants get a coach who is very familiar with what the nature in a Norbotten winter can throw at them.

The information about the training course is now updated in the respective section on this website. As always, anyone wanting to book the course, please get in touch directly with the organiser, i.e. email Olov at

For all of you not familiar with our training course, it is mandatory for anyone who wants to enter the Lapland Arctic Ultra but has no previous experience with cold weather adventures. Athletes can do the course immediately before the race or they can do it one winter and then come back to do the race a year later. The course is also open to people who do not want to do our race!
