Fat Biking in the Bear Kingdom

Martinselkonen Wilds Centre

Experience a new way of moving in the snow covered Taiga Forest. During this one week holiday, you will drive with special designed Fat bikes about 80km in untouched Wilderness which is home of several Brown Bears. (Luckily in winter time they are in deep sleep.) Enjoy the unspoiled forest and the silence just next to Russian border while driving a bike. On the way we will see many animal tracks on the snow and maybe you are able to see the Northern Lights dancing in the sky too.
