What are we going to do

Are you interested in the clear water of a flowing river, an adventure in untouched clean nature, a taste experience of Saimaa's delicacies and relaxing early summer evenings? During the canoeing route, you will experience narrow river sections, winding lake capes, and deep lakes. Along the route, the beaches are safely close. During the trip, the guides take good care of you and create a safe and warm atmosphere from start to finish.

The trip starts from the Discover Saimaa river kayaking point on the shore of Pienen Jukajärvi. The atmosphere of Lieviskänjoki is almost speechless. The bends of the gently flowing river arouse interest in a mystical way. On Mikonpolvi's porch, we make a fire and enjoy a delicious packed lunch.

Lieviskänkoski has a short kayak-carrying section on the other side of the rapids, from where the journey continues to Lieviskänjärvi. On the shore of Lieviskänjärvi in ​​Reposenniemi, the couple of the house welcomes us and a warm sauna and dinner crown the day of kayaking. You will enjoy a delicious local food dinner. We will spend the night on the shore of Saimaa in a barn accommodation.

The next day's kayaking trip will take you to the wonderful nature reserve of Saimaa's Katosselä, where you might be able to see the Saimaa norpa. Along the way, we admire rock cliffs and the beauty of nature and rock paintings. We take a break on the island, where we enjoy beach fish prepared over a campfire.

The length of the trip is approximately 10-12 km/day.

Level of difficulty: The ability to swim is essential. Going on a trip makes more sense when you have paddled before and have the basics in hand. Beginners can participate in a two-person kayak/canoe. We can also organize a private paddling course before the paddling trip. Ask more about the courses at info@discoversaimaa.fi
