This is a very demanding bikepacking route that goes via Raittijärvi sami village, a special place in the middle of nowhere. Say hello to the inhabitants, there is always somebody there.
During the first 5 km the track is very stony and demanding, but eventually it gets better, and there are long duckboards over the marshes. The uphill from Njamatjavri is very demanding and wet.
The river crossing right before Raittijärvi village may be difficult if the water is high. Follow the ATV track and you will be fine.
The route ends at Poroharju ridge, near Poroeno river. You MAY be able to cross the river on a stony ridge right where the track descends to the river. There MAY be a usable boat where the river goes through the ridge. But anyway, the place is extremely beautiful - just set up your camp and enjoy.
