The first day of Icebug Xperience Mountain Trail Weekend takes place at Gaustablikk Høyfjellshotell. As a warm welcome, the stage starts with a 100 m climb, before you enter a flatter part of the stage in a forest area, where you will run or hike on narrow hiking trails. The big challenge of the day starts at approximately 7 km. From here 3 tough kilometres awaits , which will take you from an altitude of 910m to the peak Ørnenipa, located 1 333 m above sea level.

From here, get ready to enjoy a fast – and fun – downhill session for almost 3 km. The final part of the stage goes through the elvish Norwegian forest, and arrives back at Gaustablikk Høyfjellshotell. The first day is done – but more challenges await right around the corner!
