Our guests often tell us that, until they tried it, they never realised just how different and amazing fatbiking is. They might look big and bulky, but our state-of-the-art bikes practically float over all sorts of obstacles you come across while riding. In fact, rocks and roots just make the experience more exciting!

Our guided fatbike rides in the forest are perfect for you, if you’re looking to discover Finland’s unique natural environment in a completely new way. A word of warning, many thousands of people have already fallen in love with fatbiking and ended up buying their own set of wheels after trying them for the first time!

The best bit about fatbiking is that you can do it all year round, whatever the weather. The winter riding experience is completely different, and lots of riders prefer the thrill of tearing through snow

Nature, nature and more nature plus smooth fatbike riding across Central Finland’s highly versatile but always stunning terrain – those are the key ingredients that go into our unforgettable, high-energy fatbike rides. The Varjola-Peurunka-Laukaa area has a huge choice of trails that we use to create the perfect route for your group. Explore cross-country ski trails and gravel roads, flat sections and village streets, before heading up narrow forest trails and fun climbs to check out the local scenery from higher ground.

The roads and trails travel across stunningly beautiful rural and forest landscapes and provide plenty of challenges for everyone, including riders looking for an adrenaline rush. Multamäki Hill offers particularly gorgeous views across Lake Peurunkajärvi. The route is rated a 2–3 (on a scale of 1–5), meaning that it’s suitable for people with a reasonable level of fitness.

Before we set off, we’ll go through the kit on your fatbike, share some technical tips and finish it all off with a couple of practical exercises. If you already have some previous mountain biking experience, we can adjust our route to a Grade 4, which will involve more technical trails and steeper climbs and descents, and we can travel at a faster pace too. Our standard route covers around 10–15 km, depending on your preference. But remember, it’s the journey that matters, not the distance!

Guided trip lasts 2-3 hours.
