Rovaniemi to North Cape by bicycle


We are planning a trip from Rovaniemi to North Cape 680 km by bicycle. I was wondering if somebody has done this trip?

The best time to see the Aurora Borealis is in April-May and then again from late June. Average Temperature in April is 1.8 C, May 9.2 C and June 16.6 C.

I think June would be the best time to do this trip even though it might become very cold in the evening....

Route:
Day 1: Rovaniemi - Kemijarvi (87 km)
Day 2: Kemijarvi - Sodankyla (109 km)
Day 3: Sodankyla - Vuotso (88 km)
Day 4: Vuotso - Inari (109 km)
Day 5: Inari - Karigasniemi (99 km)
Day 6: Karigasniemi - Stabbursdalen (111 km)
Day 7: Stabbursdalen - Repvåg (103 km)
Day 8: Repvåg - Honningsvåg North Cape (58 km)

Entrance to the North Cape is 200 NOK or about 22 EUR (2008) according to Wikipedia

Here you can read about my plan.

hey


That sounds like a really nice plan. Aurora Borealis and everything. What a great thing to experience, especially in a group of different people.

Unfortunately you cannot always participate on every trip!
