What are we going to do

River Valamjoki is a beautiful wild river, coming from Russia. 20 km of pure wilderness paddling is waiting for you! Later on, Valamjoki is flowing into River Jongunjoki. Caused by its twisted arms with always changing rocky or sandy shores, islands of grass and homes of beavers, paddling on river Valamajoki is every time a new experience – depending on the amount of rain fallen during the days before. Later on, on river Jongunjoki, the water is flowing very slowly, only a few parts with short rapids and real flow. A great paddling-adventure for everyone who is not scared of getting wet!

About Eräkeskus - the Doer

We run our kennels since 18 years in the same place. We love nature, we love our dogs, work with them, ride a team of sleddogs in winter time, take them to the dog-pool in summertime - and we love to share this passion with you! And yes, all our dogs have names and not just numbers, they are part of the family! Welcome at the starting point of your trip: our huskyfarm named Eräkeskus!


You should like and enjoy being active, being outside and on the water..:-)




very cool experience, dogs are lovely, guides are patient, trails are very nice! Loved especially the parts on the lake, as that was most relaxing! In the forest it is more challenging with ups & downs, soft parts, trees etc. Great adventure!
