Nordic TET

Post by Andrew Dalton » Mon Jul 30, 2018 8:04 am

I am planning on a Nordic TET, definitely riding Finnish leg. Unsure about whether I do the Norge or Sverige, but I would like to do one. I speak some Finnish and would ideally like to do the tour with a Finnish speaker, selfishly, to practice my bad Finnish. My plan is June or July 2019 to ride the Land of the Midnight Sun, and cross the Napapiri. Onko suomalaisia ​​moottoripyöräilijöitä, jotka pitävät tästä ideasta?

Don’t be shy to talk what you can, in finnish. And we can speak quite well english also. I have a vague idea to ride through Scandinavian TET, so it might be one idea to ride together, at least some portion of it. But it is timing question and needs more planning. I am easy going finn and you can teach english to me, if we find a common trail

Moi Yoohah. I am planning to do the TET for Midsummer 2019. My rough plan is land in Stockolm, ride Swedish TET North and Suomalainen TET south, and spend a few days in Espoo with family before I ride back via Denmark, Germany and Holland. I'd much rather ride in company. I am happy to speak Finnglish, which I speak with my aiti. She is Finnish. I ride a 701. I am planning on wild camping.

Hi Andrew. I'm planning to ride scandinavian TET next summer as well. Probably, i will start in Greece by spring an then Romania, Poland and Baltic countries to Finland or Sweden; all the time wild camping except a hot shower and a good meal every other time. I keep on planning because i'm gonna be out for several months and there are a lot of things to be done.
Regards.
José.

Hi Jose. Thanks for reaching out. I plan on starting in Stockholm and cross the Arctic Circle around midsummer. Then turn East and head south through Finland. If it coincides with you, I'd love for you to join us. This trip is likely to appear in one of the major British magazines. So far it is me and my friend Michael. Like you I am wild camping but every third day or so, proper bed, hot bath and so on. In Finland there are summer houses which are often available on AirBandB. So sauna, barbecue and olut!

Hi guys,

I will be following your planning work since it would be great to meet and ride a short section of Finnish TET with you.
I live in Kuopio quite close to TET in middle of Finland and would be happy to meet fellow TET'ers.

Hi Jose,

There are plenty of mosquitoes in Finland and Sweden in June-Aug. Not dangerous by any means but annoying, making you itch a lot.

You want to get one of these:

Sorry it's in Finnish but you get the point from picture. Also some mosquito spray/roll-on is recommended. And visor cleaner.

Other than the mossies it will be nice here in June. In the very north snow can still be blocking some trails but all proper roads are open.
