Iron Curtain Trail at the Eastern Border

CYCLING ALONG THE FINNISH-RUSSIAN BORDER

Discover the history of the "Iron Curtain", the frontier that once separated Europe and which lead from the Black Sea to the Arctic Ocean for nearly half a century. Cycle with Best Guest Finland along an approximately 200-kilometer section of the Iron Curtain Route, an excellent long-distance cycle path with a total length of over 10,000 kilometers.

IRON CURTAIN TRAIL AT THE BORDER OF EAST AND WEST

On the route, you will find traces of a military past that the Finnish border region experienced prior to Finnish independence - at times under the Swedish crown, at times under the Russian emperor. 

Scenically, the route is characterized by many quiet sections through forests and along lakes. Enjoy the tranquility, breathe in the fresh forest air, take relaxing breaks with lake views and experience the cultural treasures of Finland and the hospitality of the local people at various stopovers along the route.
