Canoeing on Äkäsriver


Canoeing is a great way to spend time in nature. Äkäsjoki river is a unique river for canoeing. As your canoe glides through the waters, you can feel part of nature. The route is easy and suitable for beginners. The river will take us
through beautiful forest landscapes. We will start the day by getting acquainted with the equipment and canoeing. We will practise paddling manoeuvres and what to do in case the canoe capsizes. After the training we shall continue to the river and the first rapids. During the day we will cover about 11 km, but we will have several breaks and enjoy the wild. Appropriate outdoor clothing: thermal underwear, trousers, preferably a water-repellent jacket, and boots. One set of extra dry clothing is also recommended in case you get wet.
