I'm back from the Pöyrisjärvi bikepacking trip. Seven days of riding in mostly dry (and almost too warm) weather. I had long and hard days, as well as a few easy ones. I enjoyed every moment of it, even the hard ones. The fatbike worked very well in the area. It provided enough suspension on the rough ATV trails and also floated well on the sand and boggy parts.
The route is shown below and mostly corresponds to the planned one. The total distance was around 400 km, of which 80 km was road.

It will take a while to process the experience and put it in writing. 24 GB of photos and video also takes some time to go through. Due to the slightly longer nature of this trip I will do a trip report in three parts: Part 1 (Saturday to Tuesday), Part 2 (Wednesday to Friday) and finally a post about the gear used. I should have the first part ready in a week.
