Into the Wild by Bike
Pudasjärvi, on the border between Lapland and the Finnish Lakeland, is where you will find Finland’s southernmost fells, Iso-Syöte and Pikku-Syöte.
From here it is still another 150 kilometres to the Arctic Circle, where Lapland “officially” begins. Syöte, which means ”blessed” in the ancient Sami language, is mainly known as the ski resort in Finland with the highest snowfall. It is also the destination attracting an increasing amount of summer tourists every year, partly thanks to its excellent mountain biking terrain.
In Lapland, swapping the hustle and bustle of ski resorts and cities to the peace and quiet of the wilderness takes mere minutes.
