From the Promoter:
The Nordic Gravel Series 2020 kicks off at the Strömfors Outdoor Factory is in the heart of Strömfors iron mill village founded late 1700. Located in the river delta, where the Kymijoki flows to the sea, roughly 100k from Helsinki east by the coast. This area is a mecca for outdoor enthusiasts, blessed with an undulating terrain of gravel roads, trails and beautiful stretches of river and riverside nature. No matter what distance you prefer, you can expect to experience a combination of unique scenery, moderate elevation and some single track sections on a green riverside.
The village offers multiple accommodation alternatives, restaurants and coffee shops. There is also the possibility to attend side activities during the weekend including canoeing, kayaking, SUP or relaxing sessions of yoga in our yoga studio. Bring your friends and family along to enjoy a perfect weekend in or out of the saddle.
Strömfors is also known from another event, Escape from Svartholma Swimrun, held every August.
