Guided Mountain Biking Tour in the northernmost Lapland

Guided Mountain Biking Tour in the northernmost Lapland

Guided 4-day mountain biking tour!  The terrain of Kaldoaivi wilderness area is versatile with hard ascents, easier highlands and the river valley of Teno. Part of the routes are challenging and very good physical condition and mountain biking experience is required.

Kaldoaivi  is the largest wilderness area in Finland. The landscape of this roadless fell area varies surprisingly from deep, steep river valleys to gentle fell slopes. The roadless area continues onto the Norwegian side. When cycling here you will be even 25km from the closest settlement without constant mobile phone coverage.

Our tours take place in August-September, when the circumstances are best for mountain biking even though the fast changes in weather are typical to the Arctic hills. The average temperatur in August is from +10-12 and in September +6-9 degrees celcius. From the end of August northern lights might already be seen in the nighttime. Each day will end up in a cozy cottage with sauna. Each participant will carry their own take-away lunch in a backbag.

Route:

  • 1st day: Mieraslompolo - Havgajävri cottage (appr. 13km)
  • 2nd day: Havgajävri cottage - Alanköngäs (appr. 65km)
  • 3rd day: Sirbma - Ifjord road in Norway (appr. 55km)
  • 4th day: morning cycle tour in Utsjoki depending on the group wishes 

Note! Price get down the more people we get along, 7 is the maximum though. If you are traveling alone, you can always ask if we do have a group you can join or you can join the start on the 26th of August, which can be combined with the Saariselkä MTB Stages event will take place from the 23th to 26th of August.
