Saariselkä MTB Stages is a 3-day MTB stage race which consists of three almost entirely different tracks. All of the tracks start from the center of Saariselkä.
The first track is a 60km-long loop which goes mainly on single-tracks and douple-tracks in the wilderness area of Hammastunturi. Along the way, the track crosses a small river and climbs up to the canyon Kulmakuru.
The track comes back to Saariselkä accross the fells Kiilopää and Ahopää. Check out the more detailed track information from Saariselkä MTB web site!

The second half goes on the forest of Laanila, and the last four kilometers go on a fast gravel road. Check out the more detailed track information from Saariselkä MTB web site!
