"Janne´s fatbikes are top notch gear for biking enthusiasts! Alunimium-made they are easy to pedal and with a slightly higher ride height the bike won´t get stuck into bushes or bumps so just go for it!" 

Titta Tapaninen, Finland

Safety and sustainability


Travellling in smaller groups does not harm the environment very much. We say hello to everyone, we eat local food, we use prepared trails, we conserve natural resources like water and elecricity at all accommodations and minimize noise and waste during the trip. And all this with respect for local cultures, tradition and religion.
