Welcome to the legend

Le Grand Tour 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 2015 edition will give you an 24 hour experience of wilderness and 1000+ alt meters between the CPs.

Two classes: Swedish Adventure Racing Series (mixed teams of 4) and Open class (Two perssons)

Welcome to the legend of adventure races!

The course

LeGrand Tour will give you an intense prolouge at Friday evening (start 20.00) and on early Saturday morning all competitors will enter a buss for transportation to the start location. The course will pass >1700 meters above the see, class 3 rapids and  take you through the deep forests of Norway and Torsby community in Värmland. Vertical rope section, rapids, lakes and mountains will make up the obstacles your team has to pass to complete the course.

Löpning

Trekking

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

Kayak

Paddling will be on big rivers with up to class 2 rapids. It’s mandatory to use helmet, pitch up roder and rafting approved multisport life-jacket (Canoes like Acron White-water and similar ar ok). 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 2 rapids to test your skills.

Cyckling

Mountainbike

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.
