Paddling is a very nature oriented and sustainable way to move and admire the beautiful flora and fauna of the Bothnian sea. The archipelago rich of birds and the rugged little islets are worth to sea and feel. While paddling in these surroundings your mind rests and your thoughts will wonder far away from the daily routines.

Paddling for beginners

Don't worry, you can easily take part to this trip even if you have never even seen a kayak before. We will start from the very basics including safety instructions. There are always at least two well trained instructors with the group.

We will help you to choose the right gear before heading to the shore. We go through the instructions and take the kayaks to the water one by one guided by the instructors. We paddle towards the Kiikeli Bay, where the water is low and therefore very safe to practice the paddling techniques and balance. The instructors will guide and advice all participants individually.   

Suitable for over 10 years old beginners, who can swim. 

Duration: 2h, out of which 1,5 hours in the water. Weather can impact to the duration.

Price: 25 €/person

Valid: every Tuesday at 18:00. Meeting point at Kauppakatu 27, Kemi (May - September) 

 

Get Familiar with Bothnian Sea

We start the paddling with safety instructions and checking the skill levels of the participants. We head towards the nearby islands and their open fire places while enjoying the unique nature of Bothnian Sea. By the open fire we offer you some snacks before paddling back to the shore.  

Suitable for everyone over 10 years old with swimming skills and some previous paddling experience.

White Night Paddling and Moonlight Paddling 

In the early evening, when the North Wind goes back to sleep and the surface of the water gets still, we start our paddling journey. At first we paddle 5 km towards our own island, Check Point Kemi. By the open fire we cook traditional Finnish pancakes, eat some snacks and prepare coffee and tea. After the break we continue paddling to the open sea where with some luck we are even able to see seals. 

As the twilight turns into dawn we paddle back to the shore with one more unique experience. 

From August to September we tie hurricane lamps into the bow of the kayak to lighten up the darkening late summer nights. Perhaps clear sky and moonlight will also lighten our way.  

Suitable for all paddler enthusiasts who want to experience the magical white night silence and awakening nature. The paddle distances are quite long so good basic physique is needed.
