2023 Races

For Riders Ready to Take on a Challenge

Welcome to the Westfjords — a remote place where mountains meet the sea, a region full of breathtaking nature and unique culture. 

In 2022, we hosted the first-ever Arna Westfjords Way Challenge – a brand new ultra-endurance race format that prioritizes cultural connection. This year, we’re offering two brand new races so riders of all levels and styles can take on a challenge in the Westfjords. Join us for the classic Arna Westfjords Way Challenge over five days, or for the final Stage Arctic Fish Midnight Special. Riders can also sign up for the 2023 Westfjords Way Open for a classic ultra race format.
