What are we going to do

Our trip starts from Hasaniemi in Joensuu, where we hop on a minibus and head towards the islands of Utra. There we drop a ten-person rubber raft into the waters and start paddling down the beautiful River Pielinen towards the estuary.

The trip takes about two hours. The distance is about 8 kilometers down a slow downstream. The trip ends in Hasaniemi, our starting point.

To get the boat moving properly, our minimum group size is 6 people.

The excursion is available from May to September when the river is melted. I

With this product we were one out of three winners in Visit Joensuu's travel product idea contest in 2021.
