N60° STORY
IGO N60° is embedded in the heart of central Norway, a
land synonymous with adventure and home to the Heroes of
Telemark raid. The locals share the same passions as IGO
and the terrain selected is a place of untamed wilderness
and immense natural beauty. It is the location for British
Special Forces training and where Scott trained for his final
expedition, this is a snow-kissed paradise that has earned
the respect of countless polar explorers. The route, designed
by our head guide Rune Abrahamsen, allows the competitors
to explore the best of this incredible landscape between the
towns of Hemsedal and Geilo.
THE 4 STAGES ARE:
DAY 1: TOURING SKI AND DOWNHILL SKI
DAY 2: FAT BIKING (FOLLOWED BY HUSKY DOGSLED)
DAY 3: CROSS-COUNTRY SKI
DAY 4: SNOW TREK/RUN
“I can wholeheartedly say
that the IGO N60° was
a life-changing event”
– Hugh A.

N60º PHILANTHROPY
IGO N60° will change more lives than just those of the

urge competitors to raise money for personal causes. Whether

positive change in the lives of those who need it most.
TEAM SPONSORSHIP:

heart. *NB one charity per team.
• Team captains may get in touch with Nick Smith, IGO’s Charity
Consultant to plan a fundraising strategy.
SUSTAINABLE SOURCING:

We are very careful about who we work with on all IGO
events. We only use suppliers and contractors who share
our ethos and we strive to have a positive effect on the local
area; environmentally, economically and socially.
“Being with the most inspirational
group of people has kickstarted a
new chapter of my life - I have come
out stronger, brighter and faster.”
– Neil C.
