Watching the photos coming out of this event, it looks stunning.

Yesterday I lost a few hours working out how to get to Helsinki, and how to get home from Varda, without flying.

Does anyone know how often the even runs? is it annual?

I'm thinking 2022...

Every year so far. The end destination [edit: and sometimes start] is different every year. 2019 was Tartu to Hammerfest.

In 2014 I met up with Mikka and other randonneurs.fi members in Saariselkä when they'd just finished a 1-way 1000km from Helsinki. They were preparing to start the journey home down south by bus - no problem with bikes apparently. I rode there -  the first of my Finnish end-to-ends to go with my side-to-side.

PS I like Finland
