Yes there is

North wild forest 17-19 Sep in Lapland

It's inside of the triangle Kemijärvi, Rovaniemi and Sodankylä.
It's middle of nowhere and there is only water and fire and lot of friendly and funny adventures bikers.
Normally jabs are arriving all ready on Thursday and leaving on Monday.
There is also army tents where is normally place for foreign roamers.
Some of the jabs normally make reindeer stew and brown bear soup for Saturday lunch

Thank you to those who have replied to this, I can see 1 or 2 events which fit in with our still to be decided route but don't let that stop anybody suggesting anything else.
