Helsinki by Kayak


This is where we start our kayak tour! As we arrive at the Vuosaari Paddling Center, we have a chance to change our clothes, use the toilet and enjoy a nice cup of coffee at the coffee. Soon we will choose the right kayaks for everyone and go through the basic techniques and talk about safety. After that we set out for our kayak tour. Depending on the group and the weather we choose the best route option for the day. During the tour we stop for a short break on one of the beautiful recreational islands of the Eastern Helsinki archipelago. After about 3 hours we finish our tour back at Vuosaari Paddling Center.
