Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Mountain biking holiday, Finnish Lapland


We are taking you far out in the wilderness by using old trails of the area. For the first night you will stay in a wilderness cabin, with the next two nights in a cottage. We'll have mostly unpacked takeaway meals with us and will not leave any litter behind us in the nature.

This is a cycle tour so only muscle power is used for getting around on tundra although some transportation by car is needed. When moving in tundra we try not to cause any harm to the flora or fauna. The local wilderness guide will teach practical tricks for surviving in the wilderness.

We'll not use linen but a sleeping bag and clean the wilderness cabin by ourselves in order to avoid extra driving. The area where we are cycling is called Kaldoaivi wilderness area and it is not part of any National Park.

We hope to eat local wild food: berries, mushroom, fish and reindeer meat.


All services are provided by local companies. Timing chosen is ideal not only for mountain biking but also for the local tourism as it is between the fishing season ending on the 20th of August and hunting season starting from the 10th of August so we are filling in accommodation capacity. In addition to giving work for a local wilderness guide, we also use the services of two local transportation companies and two local holiday villages.

In order to give the group an understanding of the area and the living there, the tour will begin by a visit to Siida museum of Sámi culture together with the wilderness guide. They will hear about the 8 seasons, way of living in the Arctic as well as flora and fauna. They will hear about reindeer herding, later they will see reindeer herds on tundra and have a chance to visit a reindeer farm.
