The tour begins with free technique sprints in Lenzerheide, Switzerland, on the 28th of December 2021. On the following day, the same locality will host classic style 10/15 km intermediate races.

After one days rest, the tour continues with free technique 10/15 km interval starts in Oberstdorf, Germany on New Year´s Eve. The next day a new year begins in Oberstdorf with classic technique sprints.

After Oberstdorf, the tour will move to its final locality in Val Di Fiemme, Italy, where one day of rest will be followed by two events on January 3rd and 4th. First there is a classic technique 10/15 km mass start on Monday followed by the challenging 10 km final climb event with free technique on Tuesday.

The final leg is arranged as a mass start instead of a pursuit, now for the third time.

NOTE! All the times in the calendar are Central European Time (CET), UTC +1.

Alpe Cermis - Tour de Ski Final Climb

Tour de Ski final climb, Alpe Cermis, is a classic. The 9 km (or 10 km) tour finale culminates in climbing up an alpine skiing slope with a serpentine track. The gradient of the final climb is 425 metres, with a total climb of 495 metres. The final climb has been a part of Tour de Ski since the very start in 2007, although the less sloped first part of the final leg has varied over the years. The final climb leg has been the same for men and women since 2011.

Lightweight skiers are often successful in the final climb. For women, Therese Johaug has usually dominated the final climb. Heidi Weng was the fastest skier in the final climb when Johaug was banned.

For men, Martin Johnsrud Sundby seems especially comfortable with the final climb. He was the fastest skier in the final climb of Tour de Ski 2017–2018. The Russian Denis Spitsov was the second fastest climber on last year's tour. The male skier with the highest number of first places in the final climb is Czech Lukas Bauer (3). Matti Heikkinen has also often succeeded in the final climb, with a second fastest climb after the Frenchman Maurice Manificat in season 2016–2017.
