Welcome to the legend
Le Grand Tour (14-16 of July) is Sweden’s oldest living adventure race, maby in the whole world, we are not sure… but we are sure we are the oldest in Europe! LeGrand Tour has always bean an important part in bringing up the Swedish elite teams and many ”beginners” have struggled through the endless woods of Värmland!
We give you an adventure race with a nice mix of new and old, strength and skills, ups and downs. But most importantly, we promise to bring you this adventure with a big smile and a big heart.
The 2016 edition will give you an 24 hour experience of wilderness and a true A till B adventure experience. It will be one course, designed for the beast teams in the world, the finish will be open for 34 hours, how far will your team make it to the finish line!
Two classes: Swedish Adventure Racing Series (mixed teams of 4) and Open class (Two perssons)

LeGrand Tour will give you an intense prolouge at Thursday evening (start 18.00) and on early Friday morning all competitors will enter a buss for transportation to the start location. The course will pass >1600 meters above the see, class 3 rapids and take you through the deep forests and mountains of Norway and Sweden. Vertical rope section, rapids, lakes and mountains will make up the obstacles your team has to pass to complete the course.
But most important, the race is from A to B and a true adventure!
If you haven’t realised this before you will certainly know after this race that Norway has high peaks and Sweden has a lot of forest and marshlands. Endless as it may seem it is also challenging and beautiful. The mountains are steep, ground is soft and the marshes are wet so a pair of strong legs will come in handy.
Paddling will be on big rivers with up to class 3 rapids. It’s mandatory to use helmet, rafting approved multisport life-jacket. In 2016 the organisation will provie canoes/kayaks to all teams. Don’t be surprised if you spot wildlife alongside the rivers. Most of the time the paddling will be very safe without waves or boats around. But you will also experience class 3 rapids to test your skills.
Mountains, gravel roads and single tracks will form the main part of the cycling sections, but throughout the history of this race there has also been some legendary ”bike portage” sections to test the mental strength of the teams.
