Special Event: The Storhaugen Vertical Kilometer – Powered by Lyngen Lodge

Every July, a fantastic event takes place right outside Lyngen Lodge. The Storhaugen Vertical Kilometer starts next to the lodge, just outside the village of Djupvik, and takes you up to the summit of the Storhaugen mountain and back again. The traditional run is suitable for all different ages and abilities, but there is also a shorter route to Dalberget suitable for the whole family, and a superhero-themed run for those aged between 5-11 years.

You can find out more information about the Vertical Kilometer, along with registration details and relevant regulations at the Storhaugen Vertical Kilometer website.
