The second stop for the World Cup 2021 features three races in the temperate coniferous forests in Idre Fjäll, Sweden, located in mid-Sweden. The mountainous wilderness and slopes make Idre Fjäll a tourist destination both in winter and summer.

“Welcome to my home terrain”, says Event Director and Speaker Per Forsberg.
