    Important remarks

    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.


    During winter season weather can be anything from snow storm and -1°C to crispy -25°C. It's possible to ride almost in any weather and you really can do something to make your ride best possible. 

    Clothing recommended:

    - Thermal underwear (double when colder than -18°C)
    - Mid layer 
    - Winter jacket and trousers
    - Warm gloves or mittens
    - Winter shoes with double socks 
    - Balaclava or thin beanie under helmet. Note long jacket might stuck in to the back wheel and causes unpleasant situations. Same with long scarf so you better leave it to the hotel or hide well into the jacket. :)
