A mountain biking experience for the most demanding taste.

An approximately 18-kilometer-long trail located south of Sallatunturi, which challenges the cyclist: a technical uphill, a fast-paced trail bottom and wetlands. The scenery is stunning and there are comfortable rest places along the route. From the top of the fell you can see the whole area at once!

  

To be considered

- The route runs at the beginning and end along the ski track bottom, which can be ridden on a standard mountain bike. There are soft sections on the way, which is why a fat bike or a bike with at least plus size tires is recommended for the run.

 

- Bikes are rented by Salla Ski Resort and Sallatunturin Tuvat.

Stop by the Ruuhitunturi observation tower to check out the scenery! How many fells can you find?
