Cycling in Stekenjokk
Cycling through unique wilderness South Lapland and North Jämtland
Cycling on Vildmarksvägen
Cycling on Sweden’s highest roads and crosses the Stekenjokk Plateau between Lapland and Jämtland.
The tour starts with easy cycling for about 7 km along a jeep road. Then follow the Norgefararleden trail past Tjåkkelestugorna and further north towards Remdalen. After a couple of kilometers of somewhat uneven path, fantastic cycling awaits along Remdalen’s elongated gravel sands. Shortly before the national border the path becomes worse again and here it is advisable to turn around. Follow the same path back. Read more.
Kultsjödalen on the Västerbotten side and Frostviken in Jämtland offer fantastic cycling opportunities
Up on Stekenjokk there are trails and paths for both hiking and cycling and in addition, the stretch of the Vildmarksvägen road over Stekenjokk offers fantastic road cycling up at 876 meters altitude. Cycling between 3-4 m high snowfalls in the spring is an experience you should not miss if you like cycling and mountains.Read more.
From the road opening in early June to the closing in late October, Vildmarksvägen from Stalon to Gäddede is fantastic for cycling.
When the road opens, it is normal for the snow walls to be 2-4 m high and the feeling of cycling on newly laid asphalt through the tunnel of snow is fantastic. Later in the season and in the autumn, the magnificent views and colors are a mountain experience beyond the ordinary.
