UPDATE

Team accommodation is now fully booked, if you would like to travel with the team, email triathlon@hot.co.nz to register your interest


Fyn is known as the ‘Bike Island’ of Denmark, one of the finest cycling districts in the Nordic region. With over 1200km of signposted cycle routes through varied terrain, including coastline, hilly roads, flat, idyllic villages and market towns, there is something for everyone on Fyn and it is the ideal location for 2018’s ITU Multisport World Championships Festival.

Odense, Svendborg and Middelfart make up the host towns on the Fyn 2018 ITU Multisport World Championships Festival in July 2018.

Odense has a bit of everything – big city life and diversity, but also a charming atmosphere and many green oases right in the centre of the city. Home of Hans Christian Andersen, the fairytale feel of this town will leave you charmed as you wander cobblestoned streets and discover 11 sites of Andersen’s childhood and enthralling writings.

With the Duathlon, Aquabike and Long Distance Triathlon events all beginning in Odense, our New Zealand team hotel is located in the centre of this charming town and will be a great base to access the registration area and event start times. If you are competing in the Cross-Tri or Aquathlon events, we can help you arrange transport to the start lines in Svendborg and Middelfart.

Please visit the official race website for further information https://www.fyn2018.com/en  There are only limited rooms available at the New Zealand team hotel, so make sure you book early and don’t miss out!

 New Zealand team accommodation

HOT Events recognise that athletes travelling to race have different requirements in terms of budget, hotel standard, hotel facilities and room configurations. We have chosen this hotel as the official hotel based on its great location; as well as the great value offered as a room rate.

All accommodation is classified as follows: single use (one person/one bed), twin share (two people, two beds) or double share (two people/one bed).  Space at the team hotel will be limited so we strongly advise booking early. Bookings will be on a first in, first served basis.

Shared Rooms

Share accommodation is based on twin rooms only (maximum 2 adults per room).

If athletes are travelling alone and wish to share with someone, HOT Events will assist with matching up with other athletes of similar age/gender as best as possible.

Shared rooms will be subject to finding another athlete who is staying the same dates. This is not guaranteed and should no other athlete require the same dates, the athlete who has requested accommodation will be required to pay the total cost of the room (single supplement)


STAY AND PLAY

Want to extend your stay or have the family join you afterwards? Then let us know so we can arrange the perfect break away for you and your loved ones. If you do wish to amend your travel arrangements, please indicate this on the registration form (in the Stay and Play section) and HOT Events will be in touch with you regarding your requirements. 

With our dedicated travel specialists, we will work with you on your specific requirements to extend your travel if required. 


Travel Amendments

We understand that you might want to amend your travel dates to best suit the dates of your event or events. While we can work with you on a package to suit your needs, our group accommodation in Odense must be booked for the entire 10 night stay, regardless of your actual length of stay. Travel arrangements pre and post Odense are flexible and we can assist with rental car hire, further Denmark/Europe accommodation and any flights required.

Important notes

  • All costs associated with extensions are at your own expense and must be paid at time of booking
  • Due to the high demand for flights, we do recommend that you request your extension travel as soon as possible as part of the online registration
  • Prices for extension packages are subject to change based on exchange rates and taxes
  • All options are subject to availability at time of booking
