Lopme Aavoe Regatta

Lopme Aavoe Snowkite Regatta

Lopme Aavoe directly translated in Southern Sami mean snow joy. In honour of this we created a 2 day event in celebration of this wonderful area and endless fun we can have on the snow. Fun is the objective and all skill levels are invited. There will be a handicap system in place to allow all participants an opportunity to participate. Race is designed on a course that is 10Km. The strength of the wind determines the amount of laps of the course. We will be racing between Jakobshöjden, Fosksjökläpparna and Bläkläppen

The event is created for the whole family and there will be activities for the children as well as the adults. It is a celebration of the beautiful diversity of our area, its peoples and the extraordinary mixing pot of cultures we are blessed with here. No Grövelsöfjällen gathering would be complete without a BBQ. We will have a regatta Tipi were we will be servicing amazing Sami cuisine prepared by Renbiten every evening.
