Karu Lakeland Canoeing Trip

Season: May-September
Duration: 5 hours canoeing + travel time
Course size: 6-16
Prize: 125 €/person


Finland is one of the richest countries in Europe in terms of the number of watercourses. Karu’s guides will take you on a journey to the Finnish lake district – a unique and partly protected region. The narrow rivers that wind through the wilderness and the dark lakes offer a breathtakingly beautiful setting for canoeing. 

Travelling in a canoe lets you slip through the water silently and truly to be part of nature. Our local guides are professional canoeing instructors. They come from long line of hunter-gatherers and their roots are deep in the land.

Kolovesi National Park is one of the most beautiful canoeing locations in Finland. It is a protected habitat of the Saimaa ringed seal, and no motor vehicles are allowed. This picturesque national park is renowned for its unique islands and steep rocky shores.
