2004: Arctic Circle Tour: Finland (Napapiiri)
We took the BikeFridays to Helsinki and made our way all the way up to Rovaniemi on the Arctic Circle ("Napapiiri" in Finnish). We took ferries and trains too but pedalled about 750 kilometers (500 miles). Finland is ideal for bicycle touring. There are excellent bike route guides and maps, dedicated "bicycle roads" between many cities and inside virtually all towns and cities. Drivers are courteous, Daylight lasts a loooong time (in summer) and the country is virtually flat. Now that I'm over 60 we stay in hotels -- no more camping. (41 pictures)
