Fossavatnsgangan

 31st March–2nd April 2022

The Race

Established in 1935, Fossavatnsgangan is one of the longest running sports events in Iceland. The inaugural race was 18 km long and there were no problems with overcrowded tracks as only seven skiers showed up for the occasion. Fast forward 80 years; in 2015 Fossavatnsgangan was first skied as a part of the Worldloppet family, this time with almost a thousand skiers joining the festival.
