Media accreditation for Tour des Fjords 2018

Are you covering this edition of Tour des Fjords? Then we'll kindly ask you to send your name, contact information and who you'll be working for to us, and then we'll give you the media accreditation.

Only journalists and photographers with an accreditation will be granted access to the press center and closed photo and interview zones in the finishing area. All media that need access to parts of the route ahead of the race by car, or that need parking at the official parking area in the finishing area, must have a vehicle accreditation sign.
