Paddling trips, both scheduled and on demand

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 see and feel. While paddling in these surroundings your mind rests and your thoughts will wander far away from the daily routines.

We offer a different kind of paddling trips both for beginners and for active flat water paddlers. Read more and make a reservation!. More information about reservations, gear, and safety you will find from here

 

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 advise all participants individually.

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 paddle 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. 

Available:    1.6 - 30.9.2018
Price:           100 €/ person
Duration:     6-7 hours

Valid on demand for 4 - 8 persons 
White Night Paddling from : June to July
