The Fat biking in Finland tour starts and ends in Basecamp Oulanka. The Fat biking in Finland is a mountain biking tour that takes 8 days taking you through Basecamp Oulanka, Finland and other destinations in Finland.

Take on the wilderness in an entirely new way on this new fat biking trip. This is mountain biking turned up to the max – chunky, extra grip tyres allow you to ride your bike through the snow like never before. You’ll be out on the incredible Finnish taiga, cycling through primordial forests, along frozen lakes and towards spectacular snow-covered horizons. Pre-prepared tracks in the snow allow you to ride with relative ease, whilst seeing the best of arctic Finland from the saddle. As if that isn’t enough, you’ll stay in remote wilderness cabins with traditional saunas and authentic cuisine to keep you cosy when the daylight fades, and if you’re lucky, the chance to watch the dance of the Northern Lights. This is the ultimate winter biking adventure, a truly unique experience!

Wilderness Adventure on a fat bike.
5 - Excellent
“If you're considering doing this trip - do it! I loved every moment, the scenery was stunning, my trip companions were lovely, the biking was awesome, the food superb, the organisation top notch and the accommodation was perfect. Anymore superlatives! We had perfect weather - cold, dry and sunny with clear skies which definitely helped to make this such a wonderful week.”
Fun, Scenery, Saunas and Northern Lights too

“the most fun I have had in the snow with my clothes on. Accommodation was great, the log cabin at the Russian end was amazing. Having to cut a hole in the frozen river to get water for the sauna - and what a great sauna that was - all added to the experience. Fatbiking in the snow was a new skill set, never fully mastered, and I lost count of the times I put my foot down for safety only to sink into two foot of snow. Henry was a great tour guide and was definitley part of the holiday. A great group of people having a great time. And the Northern Lights are amazing”
