Kayak Finland

Midnight sun in Päijänne National Park.

Finland in the summer is just beautiful! Deep blue lakes sparkle in the sun, white-tailed eagle pull wide circles in the sky and it often seems as if you have the endless forests for you alone.

In the evening the mood changes: The sun disappears behind the horizon for a short time and the landscape is bathed in unreal twilight. During your holiday week you paddle from island to island and get to know one of Finland's most beautiful lake landscapes. You spend the bright nights under the open sky and in country-typical log cabins. If you return to civilization after this week, you will agree: Finland in the summer is just beautiful!
