Spectators information

We welcome all spectators, friends and families to participate in our events.

The course is very easy to follow by bicycle when the teams arrive on Utö North. These are available for rent in the harbour. Make sure to ride safely as you are on open roads, even though they have little traffic.

There is a restaurant right next to the event area. If you want to buy food there is plenty there.

Travel

The island of Utö is in the Stockholm Archipelago South East of Stockholm. We suggest you fly to Stockholm.
From Stockholm Arlanda Airport you can take the Arlanda Express train to Stockholm City Centre.

From the Stockholm Central Station you can take a subway, bus and ferry to Utö. Use the travel planner in this link and put in Stockholm C as your departing station and Utö Gruvbryggan as your arrival station.

If you arrive by car there is a big parking lot at Årsta Brygga where the ferry to Utö, Gruvbryggan leaves from. Use the travel planner above to check the ferry times from Årsta Brygga.

The latest return ferry is at 16:45 from Utö. It leaves so that it matches the public bus on the other end that takes you to the train station.

Accommodation

Book your accommodation with Utö Värdshus, they have all types of living solutions for you.
There is also a camping area less than 1 km from the finish area.

Weather

In the end of August we usually find late Swedish summer weather. But, it can be the start of autumn. Make sure you bring clothes to stay warm. It can be anything between 5 – 20 degrees C.

Water temperatures will be between 16- 18 degrees C depending on where along the course. Make sure you dress with a good wool layer underneath your wetsuit and use a Neoprene cap if you are not used to cold water.

Like everywhere we can have wind, rain and un-seasonably cold. Make sure you bring clothes to handle this.

Salt water. The water in the Baltic has very low salinity. Some teams will even race without swim goggles.

Media production

During each race we make a media production for social media and traditional media. You will see photographers, reporters and film teams.
