Description

The tumultuous waters of the Kymijoki river await us for a thrilling adventure while descending towards the valley on an inflatable raft enjoying the wildest scenery Finnish nature has to offer.



What we will see
  • Kymijoki river
  • Coffee break
  • Rafting excursion


What we will do
  • We reach the banks of the Kymijoki river, one of the largest in southern Finland and a favourite destination of fishing enthusiasts such as Tsar Alexander III of Russia who, over a century ago, had a cottage built precisely in this area in which to spend the summer months.
  • The wild nature is perfect for a thrilling rafting experience like the one we are about to embark on.
  • Before starting, we enjoy a cup of coffee made on an open fire before wearing a helmet and life jacket and learning how to sit and control the raft during the excursion.
  • For the first 2 kilometres, we sail along calm waters taking in the marvellous scenery: small tranquil bays with tree branches stretching out onto the water, patient fishermen and a bucolic countryside.
  • We then reach the most adventurous part of our excursion and our ability to work as teams is tested as we deal with the tumultuous rapids that give us a shot of adrenaline! By following the instructions of our guide, we tackle and overcome the challenges posed by the river for a truly unforgettable experience.
