March 24-27 2015 we welcome about 40 teams for the seventh time to the Hawaii of snow kiting. They come to conquer the Varanger Peninsula in Northern Norway. Want to be a part of the adventure? Apply on www.vake.no before November 15.

Self-sufficient in teams of two, kiters from all over the world set out to make their way from the fishing town of Berlevåg, across the Varanger Peninsula, alongside the Varanger fjord and all the way to Vardø. The distance is about 200 kilometers, but quickly doubles in actual kiting distance.

For the tough
You don’t sign up for VAKE, you apply. The Varanger Peninsula can be traitorous with its winds and weather, and all teams must show that they have both kiting- and expedition experience. The ability to manage both strong winds and no wind is important. In the end – VAKE could be a competition against yourself and your teams’ will-power.

Stunning views
VAKE is a contest, an expedition and an adventure – but also a stunning journey across the remote areas of the Varanger Peninsula. There are not many places in the world where you get the high-mountain feeling looking down on the fjord only 300 meters below. The light in Varanger is famous, and in March and April the winter is as its best. Several of our teams say that they’ve had their most amazing kiting experiences during VAKE.

Apply before November 15
Teams wanting to be a part of the world’s toughest kiting expedition should apply on www.vake.no before November 2015. We make our selection of teams around December 1st.
The participation fee is 4000 NOK for the team and that covers transportation from Kirkenes/Vadsø to Berlevåg, to and from Vardø, from checkpoints (on specific times and/or only if necessary, due to injuries or other emergencies) and for excess luggage from Berlevåg to Vardø, meals before and after the competition, simple sleeping-arrangements (floor with own sleeping bag) before the competition, security and assistance during the race and the banquet on Saturday March 28.

Read all about Varanger Arctic Kite Enduro and how to get here, payment, rules and gear on www.vake.no.
