Snow Surf trip to Lemmenjoki National Park with eFatbikes

Length of this trip is 4 days and 3 nights

This four-day snow surfing camp is all about powder snow and winter magic in beautiful Lemmenjoki National park. Have you ever wondered if you could make expedition-style trip with eFatbikes to remote wilderness area to do downhill sport? Well with us you now can!

We will stay in a cozy wilderness cabin from where we do our daily attacks to nearby forest-covered hills to do surfing in the deep snow. We will ride our legs off and when we are done, we heat the sauna (Finnish hot-hot room for sweating and achieving both physical and mental cleansing).

If a full day of riding leaves you wanting more, we will strap on our head torches and continue riding after the daylight is gone and the darkness has settled. Riding in the dark is like stepping into the upside down world of Stranger Things. Going out after the sunset means that there is also a good possibility to see the Northern lights. Imagine standing on top of the fjell with green and purple light dancing in the sky! Then, when you’re ready, you descend, carving beautiful and soft turns towards our heated cabin where there’s a crackling fireplace, and a dinner, ready to be demolished. When your stomach is full, you’ll curl into your sleeping bag, only to wake up for another day to repeat the Madness!
