Join Us for a Relaxing Canoe Tour on the Tankajoki River!

We’ll meet at Arctic Sky to go over the equipment and safety instructions. Then, we’ll drive to the starting point of the excursion, where we’ll review paddling techniques and safety guidelines.

We’ll paddle in 2-3 person canoes along the gently flowing and pleasantly winding Tankajoki River. We’ll take breaks as needed, and around halfway, there will be a snack break (sandwiches, drinks). Enjoy a wonderful day in the outdoors!

The paddling distance is approximately 17 km (10.5 miles), and the paddling time is approximately 4.5 hours. The total duration of the excursion, including transportation and safety instructions, is approximately 6 hours.

You don’t need your own canoeing partner; we’ll pair participants up if necessary. Swimming skills are required for safety reasons. Participants must be over 12 years old. The minimum number of participants is 3.
