Description

Situated in the very northern tip of Finland is the famed Lapland, heading out on an 8-day e-Fatbike tour is the perfect way to experience this beautiful and remote part of the world!

Starting from Kilpisjärvi, we will spend each day using the e-Fatbike to explore the stunning wild fell highlands.

The hybrid bikes have a motor and allow for pedaling, providing some assistance going uphill while still giving you the full mountain biking experience.

The adventure begins as we leave the small village of Kilpisjärvi and cross a series of frozen lakes en route to the fells. The next days will be spent ascending and descending fells until we reach the summit of Finland.

We will head to Halti Fell (1,328 meters) from the top of which there are views for about 100 kilometers on a clear day.

The rest of the trip will be spent gradually returning to Kilpisjärvi. As we return, we'll have the option to do a bit of wilderness skiing, both exploring the area and traveling down through the fells.

At the end of the trip, we'll have one last day in Kilpisjärvi to unwind and try out the traditional sauna before saying farewell.

So what are you waiting for? Book now for this unforgettable 8-day e-Fatbike tour of Finnish Lapland!

What people are saying about Bliss Adventure

January, 2020

Great wilderness experience with Hannele and Claudia at Bliss Adventure in mid-January. Beautiful winter wilderness landscape and overnight stay in rustic but very comfortable log cabin. Remote and undisturbed but at the same time not too strenuous and appropriate for beginner/intermediate level skiers. Excellent organization and guiding. Highly recommended.
