Syöte has excellent cycling terrain for experienced mountain bikers, as well as for families with children going on day trips. The region boasts a total of about 190 kilometres of marked routes that have been designated for mountain biking and bicycle touring. The mountain bike routes run through varied terrain in the Syöte National Park and in the Iso-Syöte Hiking Area, and, partly, outside these areas. The bicycle touring routes chiefly run along motor roads. You can hire bicycles from our local business partners.
