Finland - Saariselkä
In Saariselkä mountain bikers can familiarise 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 watch the new-born reindeer´s first steps on the fells.
