Fatbikes are perfect fit for the terrain in Ylläs and make it accesible year-round. Fat tires make riding smooth and pleasant even on snowy trails. Winter biking trails are maintained just like cross-country ski tracks for best possible conditions: Ylläs network of winter biking trails covers 100 kilometres.
The winter biking trail network is presented in the Ylläs Winter Sports Map which you can purchase from the local shops and tourist info and in the online Ylläs Track and Trail Service. By purchasing a paper map or the online service you are contributing the maintenance of the tracks and trails.
From the Ylläs online Track and Trail service you can follow the maintenance of the winter trails in real time.
