What are we going to do

Let's go for a kayaking tour and picnic in the beautiful archipelago of Helsinki! Helsinki is a fascinatingly beautiful place to visit, and on its best as seen from seaside, and especially, from a kayak. During this private day tour, you will have the opportunity to paddle a kayak with an experienced nature- and wilderness guide. We will see Helsinki archipelago and have a picnic on one rocky island, feeling the wind and sunshine, with birds flying over us.

This tour is fully customizable according to your requests, so please ask, and I will be happy to build a special tour just for you. We can for instance paddle around Villinki island, and have our picnic there. There are plenty of other locations to make a tour too, just ask!

We can start this tour from your hotel or from cruiser port. I will come to get you with my own car (2 persons) or with a rented van and drive to the starting point some 10km in the east. There we will get suitable equipment like kayaks, life-vests and paddles, and start our day trip in the archipelago. We will also have a lunch packet with us, so we can have a picnic on an abandoned island. During the day we will have approximately 18 kilometers of kayaking and return to our starting point. Then I will drive you back to your hotel.

About Timo - the Doer

I am a Nature and Wilderness guide, with a professional ability to work as a tourist guide in Helsinki. I am also able to take you to Suomenlinna as an authorized guide, although it is not allowed to ride bikes there. I have started as a tourist guide year 2013, and I have professional education for this kind of lifestyle and profession. I used to be 39 years as an computer engineer, but that was not nice... so now it is the time to enjoy life!


As this is an kayaking experience that will be done in sea archipelago, it is eminent that you need to be able to use a kayak, and have done that enough often before. You also need to have ability to swim if you flip around. We will paddle in rather calm conditions, and if the weather gets too hard, the tour will be cancelled due safety. Please prepare with good water-sporting capable clothing, and have also a pack of extra dry clothes with you.
