The short story

It’s all about to provide mountain biking by real mountain bikers.

Goal number one: We want to see you smiling on the bike in the middle of arctic nature and the cleanest air on the planet. Our customers are our riding buddies and we love to help you to get the best highlights of your trip.

Roll Outdoors is providing guided mountain biking tours suitable from beginners to advanced riders.

We are located in Rovaniemi and operating in whole Scandinavian Lapland.

Who we are?

In the beginning there were two designer-guys, Heikki and Johannes, with their families, daily jobs and routines, but not enough time for mountain biking and outdoors life. Gotta do something for that! Now, after hundreds of cups of coffee later, the guys and the families are left, but every morning we wake up to help you to get on the bike.

Heikki Stöckell, CO-founder of Roll Outdoors is a pure cyclist, passionate nature lover and pre-life industrial designer. After ten years of snowmobile design, Heikki was ready to take a new step in his life. Head of trail building can be seen on the trails with our customers or his own kids when not in duty. Sometimes in snowy days lost in steep and snowy forests of Luosto fell taking deep powder turns with telemark skis.

Johannes Perkkiö, another CO-founder, was also educated as an industrial designer. Worked also as CEO on accomodation branch in Sweden, photographer and marketing guy in one of the leading marketing agencies in Finland. Johannes hates skis, but loves cameras. This extreme all-arounder is standing behind the camera on one day and riding in front of it another day. Family-guy-snowboarder can also be seen at his laptop writing, editing, publishing and whatever it comes to sales and marketing.
