Information on accommodation to be confirmed soon.
Most athletes will arrive to the region at Lulea airport (see also below). From there to Överkalix it is about 110 km. Transport from the airport to Överkalix and back is not part of the race package. So, all athletes need to make their own arrangements. The options are rental car, taxi transfer and bus. I will soon update in more detail re. these options and also cost.
The closest airport to Överkalix is Luleå (LLA). You can reach it via Stockholm Arlanda International Airport (ARN) with SAS and Norwegian.
The SJ night train from Stockholm is a comfortable option. It passes by Luleå where you can continue by car or bus.
Travelling by bus is easy, the distances are manageable and the routes scenic.
Information on options you will find here:
Länstrafiken Norrbotten (for local bus time tables)
The International E-road network crossing the heart of Swedish Lapland, includes E4, E8 and E10. When coming from abroad, it might be interesting to know that the borders between Sweden, Norway and Finland are open and you may pass without any border control.
