What are we going to do

3 HOURS GUIDED KICKSLED SAFARI - At the beginning of the ages, the kicksled was a necessary tool to move people and goods in challenging winter conditions. Today it represents the ecological and happy movement with your own muscles. The tour guide will explain you the basics of kicksledding and guide you through interesting wilderness routes in the most beautiful scenery of North Karelia. Price includes: kicksled, anti-skid device, headlamp, necessary safety equipment, guide and liability insurances. After the tour we offer participants a warm snack and a drink by the living fire.

We recommend clothes like windproof clothing, a hat, mittens, ear protection and exercise footwear. Clothes that are comfortable to move around.

Safaris will take place if there are at least four participants with kicksled. Maximum 10 sleds = 20 people (one onboard and the other one is kicking). Larger groups on request, please contact us.

About Lakeland Karelia - the Doer

Amazing nature! Because of nature, we live here in Eastern Finland. We have strong four seasons, snowy winter and so strong ice cover of the lakes that you can drive there with a car. In addition to lakes, there is a lots of wide nature and unspoiled forests. Forests and lakes supply plenty of food for us, our guests and wild animals. The area is sparsely populated and probably because of this the people are very friendly and welcoming.

Activities and moving in our magnificent nature is our passion and our way of life and we will continue to keep it that way.
