Would you like to reach the best views around Rovaniemi and get unique winter cycling experience of a lifetime? Join our group ride on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays with us on electric assisted wide tyre bikes to the top of Ounasvaara hill and follow your guide through the magical snowy white trails.
This trip is perfect for people new to mountain biking. As long as you can ride a regular bike, you are ready to enjoy the trip! Our special e-fatbikes make even riding uphill easy and fun on the snowy winter trails!

Winter biking with pedal assisted electric fat bike is easy for people who does some kind of cycling regularly. However this is a physical activity and can be challenging if you have not pedalled in many many years. Also if you are not familiar with bicycles at all, this ride might be a bit challenging one.
Our smallest electric fat bikes suits around 150cm long riders.
The northern weather might do its tricks now and then. When the winter cycling route is in good condition riding is very easy and flowy. Like a roller coaster where you decide the speed and intensity. After snow storm riding might be more difficult and we may have to change the route plans on the go. 99,9% of the time we will find good and fun riding and we get to the top of Ounasvaara hill and back during the ride!
We have a good knowledge of the conditions out in the trails. If the conditions are not suitable for high quality riding, we let you know and you can decide if you still want to go or to cancel the trip with full refund.
