This is the official video from Varanger Arctic Kite Enduro (VAKE) 2010. The world longest, hardest, most extreme snowkite challenge. VAKE is arranged at one of the most northern parts of Europe mainland, at the Varanger Peninsula in northern Norway. The race is conducted over three legs and the participants will have to cover a distance between 200 and 400 km from the rough sea in Berlevåg, to the plains of Kongsfjordfjellet and then heading back to the Varanger fjord, the largest fjord in Norway.
This race pushes the participants to the limit with changing conditions all the time, crossing of steep canyons and rivers. Each two man team will have to navigate between checkpoints and carry all their belongings during the race. VAKE 2011 will be the official World Championship long distance snowkite challenge!
