Winter mountain biking in the pristine nature
Ride through the snowy forest in the Pallas-Yllästunturi National Park and conquer the close by mountains. Enjoy the breath-taking views and breath in worlds cleanest air. Take a break at wilderness café for warm lunch. Stop in the middle of the forest and listen to the arctic silence. This is the perfect day of winter biker.
We recommend to book a guided tour with one of our local guides. They will tell you all the secrets of winterbiking and show you a safe way to explore the Lappish wilderness. But be careful, you might get hooked on it!
If after joining the guided winter biking tour you are eager for more, you can rent fat bikes on your own. Ylläs has more than 100 kilometres of groomed trails for biking. Trails vary from easy to difficult; some take you up the mountains and some run the deep forest of the National Park. Along the way there are several Wilderness Cafes where you can stop for cup of coffee or hot soup for lunch. Plan you trip through our trail finder and off you go!
If you are heading to the winter biking trails on your own, don’t forget the trail maps. You can either by traditional paper map form the local shops or an online map where you can also follow the maintenance on real time.
You can rent fat bikes and e-fat bikes from several companies at Ylläs. During the high season we recommend to book your bikes in advance, to make sure you are not left out.
