If you are looking for a beautiful, different and exotic bike package you have found just the right. It is about winter biking with barrel bikes in the Luleå archipelago. A real adventure with an overnight stay on an archipelago island called Hindersön. Lots of fresh air, fantastic views of the winter landscape and a very special feeling when you cycle on ice roads and snowmobile trails. Maybe you are lucky enough to experience the Northern Lights? In the evenings, you stay comfortable and can end the day in the hot sauna. 

The northern Baltic coast is adorably beautiful in winter. With a fatbike you can get out on the ice and experience the archipelago in a way that means that the word uniquely is not a cliché. You spend the night in a nice hotel in central Luleå and in a converted farmhouse on Hindersön, Jopikgården, which today is a cozy and family-friendly boutique hotel. The bicycle package comprises a total of six days and five nights with knowledgeable cycling guide out on the ice roads in the Luleå archipelago. You ride a barrel bike, a mountain bike specially designed for snow and loose sand, with extra wide tires.


The bicycle package can also be booked with fewer days. It is also possible to book an overnight stay at a hostel (4 beds in each room, shower + bathroom in the corridor) on Hindersön and hotels in Lulea. Price from 12.000 SEK / person for 6 days / 5 nights.
