Nothing to worry
It will be an advantage if You can swim and do possess a reasonable sense of humor, but equipped with a floating vest You will manage to get ashore if You by any chance would end up diving into the water.
The purpose of the Canoe Safari is not to be a canoe race. The length and the speed will be set to a level that nobody needs to feel being a galley slave.
Guided Canoe Safaris
The guide and leader on our safaris will be Your host, Matti Vääntäjä, who is also a trained survival- and canoe safari guide.
The length of a safari will be set according to the will and srength of the departees from a couple of hours upwards.
A guided safari includes transportation from the farm to the starting point and return if nothing else has been agreed.
The favourite is a safari of 4 - 6 hours, including a couple of small rapids. Extra program as sauna and swimming, dinner, a night at a campfire or something else can be included on the customer's wish.
We also offer hiking, fishing and snowshoe excursions. Contact us and we make an tour package offer for Your group.
People departing to the guided safaris will have insurance coverage for accidents, but those renting only canoes must make sure that their own insurances will cover possible personal injuries.
The number of persons on a safari may vary from
6 - 20, but can be raised over 30 if necessary.
