Experience Lake Saimaa paddling in an open canoe. The evening ends with sauna in the wonderful landscapes of Saimaa! The group meets at our farm, gather for a little initial information and enjoy a welcoming drink. After that, we are heading towards Yövesi. The total paddling distance is approx. 10 km. We try to keep the pace calm and take small breaks on the water and also pull the canoes to the shore and take a longer break in an island. There we have time to enjoy lunch, take a little walk or even a refreshing dip in the Lake Saimaa. The route goes through the beautiful landscapes of Saimaa, following shoreline and small islets. It’s also possible that we’ll see ringed seal of Saimaa during the trip if we are lucky. After paddling a pre-heated sauna and evening meal awaits the adventurers.

You can get the paddling equipment from us, so all you need to bring with you is clothes suitable for the weather and change after sauna, drinking water and energy-rich snacks while paddling.
