Varanger Arctic Kite Enduro (VAKE) is an annual long distance snow kite competition. It starts in Berlevåg, ends in Vardø and lasts for five days.

In 2018, we didn't have a race, but an expedititon. This year, the traditional VAKE is back as the World Championship in Long Distance Kiting April 2-6 2019.  

Not ready to compete, but want to experience the Hawaii of Snowkiting with a group and a guide?

We will soon announce the 2019 expeditions.
