Lapinmeren Melontakeskus - Sea Lapland Paddlers

Lapinmeren Melontakeskus has offered paddling experiences in Sea Lapland since 2009. We, Päivi and Pekka Koskela, are paddling enthusiasts and we have guided countless paddling trips and told many stories about Sea Lapland nature and its history. 

Safety is the most important thing in all our work and we have all needed safety licenses and safety documents in order as well as professional well-trained personnel, also in first aid.  

We offer wide range of different kinds of programmes for paddlers on all levels. We are also happy to build a paddling package just for your needs.  We are also specialized in planning paddling experiences for groups with special needs. Through us you can also rent a kayak and we are happy to help you to find suitable routes in the Bothnian Sea or near by rivers for you. 

Paddling is a safe, relaxing and peaceful way of moving in nature. It also gives a great and sustainable opportunity to get to know and enjoy the beautiful nature of Bothnian Sea. The archipelago is rich in birds, the rugged little islets and smoothly swimming seals are all worth to see. Also the rivers Simojoki and Tornionjoki are challenging providing excitement for paddlers. The weekly paddling lessons provide a safe way to get to know and fall in love with this sport. 

The Bothnian Sea ends here where two countries, Finland and Sweden, share a border both in sea and land. We can provide also the chance to paddle on this border and even cross it.  

We wish you most warmly welcomed whether you are a beginner or experienced paddler.
