There are plenty of local routes to choose from, ranging from more difficult rocky trails to easy forest roads.
Naturally, you don’t need to bring your own bike along, as companies offering a programme of local activity provide bicycles for hire and offer sound advice on selecting the best route. Some of the great routes include one from Saariselkä over Kaunispää to the day cabin of Moitakuru, and onwards from Kilopää over Ahopää via Laanila to Saariselkä.

Mountain biking is restricted in the Urho Kekkonen National Park. However, cycling is allowed in the following areas:
Saariselkä – Lutto, excursion route
Rajajooseppi – Anteri, former border guard detachment road

Before departing on a cycling trip into the Urho Kekkonen National Park, it is worth visiting the Metsähallitus Customer Service Point in Kiehinen, Saariselkä. At Kiehinen, you can ask for further details about possible cycling routes.

Cycling in Finland’s most magnificent fell scenery.
