I’ve taken part in Kong Winter two times, both great experiences!

It’s very versatile with great orienteering and will certainly break some stereotypical ideas about Denmark. It’s not flat and it’s not open ground!

It’s a short adventure with a long adventure feel. Kong Vinter are a great Adventure Race every has to try.

Kong Vinter is a great adventure race with good orienteering and great maps.

Always a great course. Kayak in Copenhagen Harbour was one of my highlights.

I have participated 6 times and I will come back.

There was so much to happen on Kong Vinter.

Good deal of climbs, a lot of navigation, ropeworks, kayaking. 

You would not expect this in a 24hour race in all-flat Danmark. Yet, we got a complete package.

It was a well organised event and the information meeting, time schedules and everything around the race was good.

The course was challenging and beautiful. It felt like they had put in some effort to make a good race. Kong Vinter was really fun, despite the lack of snow :o)

Kong Vinter is one of my absolutely favorite races to compete in. 

It is very well organized and even though I’ve competed in the race several of times there is always new exiting elements that challenges me and my teammates. 

I would recommend this race anytime.

Kong Vinter is one of the best ‘shorter’ competitions I participated in.

Tough courses, really good maps and very nice terrain. An awesome winter adventure race. I liked the orientering challenge.

Super well-designed race, where you get to feel nature all over your body. A race where you are challenged on both terrain, navigation disciplines and equipment.

That’s exactly what makes the race something completely extraordinary…And then, of course, the buffet at the finish line.

Kong Vinter always delivers: Big adventure and well planned routes. I have participated in Kong Vinter multiple times and they have always had something epic happening in their race.

– One year the prologue was 36 km of orienteering
– One year the best choice was to go with spikes in the tires due to heavy snowfall.
– One year we thought we could wade a section but ended up swimming.
– Last year I found out why the Black Diamond (building at Copenhagen harbor) has its name as they had planned the kayak stage well and the sun reflected the waves on the front of the building.

All in All if you want a No nonsense adventure race with one of the best route planners in Denmark try out Kong Vinter.

Kong Vinter is great way to start the season and they always put together top courses and every year come up with new areas often not used for AR before.

I have raced it several times and always really enjoyed this well organised adventure.

Bjarke Refslund, Nordisk Adventure team – 6. time participant

Despite being early season Kong Vinter is one of my favorite Danish adventure races.

The course is well planes and all ways full of surprises.

Combined with the rough winter weather the race is guaranteed to be both tough and a good experience

Thure Kjaer, Denmark – 5. time participant

Rappeling from a big silo, windy sea kayak, orienteering in limestone quarry and a lot of climbing in trees.

We had an awesome day out in the Danish countryside. 

So if you ever wonder if it’s worth to drive to Denmark for this race, I can assure you: YES!
