Winter Biking

The wide tires on your fatbike roll effortlessly on the ice towards a lakeside campfire. Many of the winter trails in Enontekiö are also open to cyclists.

The ski tracks and other tracks around Hetta, Kilpisjärvi and Yli-Kyrö are open to fatbikes.

Do remember to be considerate – skiers always have the right of way. Also try to avoid damage to the tracks.

Please note, that the condition of the routes may vary due to weather. In spring, durin the "hankikanto" solid snow, you can bike virtually anywhere. After snowfalls and in early and mid winter, when the snow has not yet hardened, cycling may be challenging if not impossible. Ask advise at local bike rental shops and Visitor Centres.

Bikes are not allowed on official snowmobile routes.
