Guided Paddling Escape into the Wilderness in Finland

The Koitajoki river is beautiful, isolated, and relaxing. Join our guided canoeing or kayaking tour and discover the true silence and versatile nature of North Karelia. On this tour you can safely enjoy the nature, clean air, and waterways of easternmost Finland. In complete silence, far from everything we paddle 100 km in five days along the Koitajoki river and surrounding lakes enjoying wilderness campsites and nightless summer nights. We meet n Petkeljärvi – Finland’s smallest national park.

We camp on the beach of one of largest islands before crossing the lake to the last stage of our paddling adventure on a narrow river through a conservation area. From there we drive to Koihu cottages along Koitajoki to enjoy sauna, North Karelian style of dinner and the last evening and night. We camp at tiny and peaceful campsites with huts or lean-tos, fireplaces, and outdoor toilets.

The guide will plan, and if necessary, modify the tour details based on the wishes and abilities of the group respecting the weather conditions. The route, speed, itinerary, and even total length can flexibly be modified to fit to all participants making this guided tour a perfect adventure for travelers who enjoy outdoor activities and have some prior kayaking or canoeing experience. Participants need to be able to swim and have some experience camping in nature, and everybody needs to be comfortable paddling about 20 km per day for several days in a row.
