Canoe Finnish Lakeland

In the moose and beaver kingdom.

The sun in the sky, steel-blue water in front of you and around your endless amounts of green forests!

Even with the first paddle strokes, you will have left the hectic of your day to day life behind you and you can truly enjoy this adventure.

Today you will travel to Laajalahti. You should arrive by 3 pm at the latest. Once you have arrived, you will receive your equipment. This quiet bay is well-suited for you to try out basic paddle strokes. Then you will have a meeting when you can get tips about the nicest routes in the area.

You will set off early in the morning! You will load the canoe up with everything that you need. You will shake hands, give each other good wishes and then you will head off on your expedition into the blue world. At the start of your tour, you should keep close to the shore. It will be easier for you to keep orientated here and to find good places to rest. The Scandinavian freedom to roam allows you to take a break where you want. To use this privilege, you have to be careful and respect your surroundings! By doing so, you quickly learn how to live harmoniously with nature.

You will visit isolated bays where you can collect berries or mountains. In the evening, you can pitch your tent and prepare yourself (with the help of the food you brought with you) a tasty meal. Every day is full of experiences and surprises. At the end of the week, it is time to return to the canoe camp. Once you have got there, you will clean your equipment and say a goodbye to the Saimaa Lakeland area.
