Guided tours

The amazing trails of Saariselkä

The area of Saariselkä is a paradise for all mountain bikers. The endless trails start from the center of the village to all possible directions. You can choose between fast gravel roads, hilly douple-tracks, and more demanding curvy single-tracks. Some of the trails head towards the fells as the others run through the forest lands.

On the foot prints of reindeer herders and gold-diggers

In Saariselkä mountain bikers can familiarize themselves with the history and tradition of the area while riding in the forests. Both, gold-digging and reindeer herding are part of the history of the area but at the same time examples of the still living tradition. In Laanila area you can still see traditional gold-digging, and the fells of Saariselkä are traditionally reindeer herding areas of the Sámi people.

In summer time the reindeer wander up to the fells to run away from the bugs. At best the mountain bikers can wach the new-born reindeer´s first steps on the fells.
