Border to Border ski is 420 km long guided ski tour in Northern Finland. The route follows near the Arctic Circle from Russian border to Swedish border. The event is on the bucket list of every enthusiastic cross-country skier. Welcome to join us!
My sad duty is to announce that ski organization has made following decision.
In this deteriorating Covid-19 situation and with constantly tightening new restrictions we have to cancel 2022 Border to Border -skiing. As we are responsible event organizer and our top priority is our participants health and safety we have no other option than do this decision. We continue our work with this unique event, and our strongest will is that 38. Border to Border -skiing takes place in 2023.
We have sent email for all the participants and instructions what to do next. Our inbox is pretty full due this cancellation so please be patient, we will reply for everyone.
For us it is time to quiet down for Christmas and we will be back on work 3.1.2022. We wish you all merry Christmas and happy new year!

Border to Border Ski / City of Pudasjärvi
The organizers of Border to border –skiing event: the city of Kuusamo, the municipality of Taivalkoski, the city of Pudasjärvi, the municipality of Ranua, the municipality of Keminmaa and the city of Tornio have decided on Wednesday 23 September 2020 not to organize Border to border skiing in March 2021 due to a coronavirus pandemic.
Border-to-Border, they said, is a well-organized event, showcasing a part of the ski world – Finland’s Lapland region, just below the Arctic Circle - that few ever see.
We apologize for our silence. We, the organizers, we are currently investigating whether 38. Border to Border Ski -event can safely organized in March 2021. We will continuously monitor the development of the corona pandemic in us and around the world and will comply with all regulations, guidelines and recommendations issued by the authorities. On September 23, 2020, the organizers will meet and we announce the future no later than September 25, 2020. We will only open registration after that, if the situation allows.
