If you ride fast enough, you can jump over the hill (yeah, right) Day 04 – Tour de Finnmark 2016: Adamselv – Kunes – Børselv/Pyssyjoki

Yesterday I might have forgotten to mention a light rain: it lasted so long that at the end I was quite wet. Yes, I have waterproof equipment, but that gets wet anyway. And when putting up a tent in a wet terrain, shoes tend to get wet as well, no matter you have them covered […]

Reindeers decided to go to higher grounds to eat Day 03 – Tour de Finnmark 2016: Suohpajávri Lake – Ifjord – Adamsfjord

If there is a god of tailwind, it seems he’s got his benevolent eyes on me again. Especially today, with such an instable weather and wind that went up to 15 km/h. How do I know the speed: by stopping. I already noticed that the temperature dropped down during the night (well, night, let’s say […]

Colourful houses in Pykeijä Day 02 – Tour de Finnmark 2016: Bugøynes/Pykeijä – Tana Bru – Suohpajávri Lake

It’s nice cycling when you have tail wind. Especially if the temperature is 10-15 degrees: you realise it just when you stop, otherwise it’s like no wind at all. The day started visiting Bugøynes, or Pykeijä in the local Finnish dialect. I was thinking to go there three years ago, but a worrying upcoming thunderstorm […]

IMG_4117 Day 01 – Tour de Finnmark 2016: Näätämö – Bugøynes/Pykeijä

The “long-lasting” tradition of a self-assisted cycling tour is revived this summer after the Tour de Finlande 2010 and the Tour de Laponie 2013. This time I decided to focus my trip just to Norway, in the region of Finnmark, that is, in the far […]

IMG_2510 Day 05 – Tour de Danube 2016: Tulln – Vienna

Not the best morning in the medieval town of Krems. Even before waking up completely I could hear the drops of rain splashing on the windows. And there was it, when you’ve cycled long journeys you learn to watch the sky like a farmer. Those few shades of grey clouds without any huge variations and […]

Tour de Finlande 2010: Finland by bicycle

The Tour de Finlande 2010 has been a cycling journey I did during the summer 2010. The basic idea was this: let's visit Finland by bicycle. As many of you might already know, Finland is not a small country : with its 337,030 km2 (130,128 sq mi) Finland...
