Roll Outdoors

Guided mountain biking tours in Finnish Lapland & fat bike rental! Roll Outdoors is here to offer natural activities and get you on a mountain bike in the Arctic wilderness of Rovaniemi area.

Swimming in the city beach

Winter and summer time!

Just on the otherside of the river between the bridges lies the city beach which is a good swimming spot in summer and winter. You can try swimming there even during the coldest months -if you dare - since the ice swimming enthusiasts keep a hole in the ice open all winter.
