The best rapids on Kitka river

A stone's throw from Basecamp

Join us on a rafting adventure in Kuusamo

Basecamp Oulanka is located next to the famous rapids of Kitka river, which flows into the Oulanka National Park.
Our popular rafting trips continue throughout the summer until the end of September. There are several route options to choose from, starting from a family route suitable for beginners and the youngest members of the family, to a route for daredevils to the wildest rapids of Kitka river. On the scenic route, you will have time to admire the stunning landscapes of the Oulanka National Park along the river route.

All rafting starts and ends at Basecamp Oulanka, Myllykoskentie 30, Kuusamo. We have a free parking lot for those arriving by car. The price includes high-quality rafting equipment and clean changing rooms. Each raft is guided by an official, experienced rafting guide. Possible transport to the starting point of the route or back from the end point of the route is also included in the price. By participating in the rafting trip, you support nature conservation efforts and the operation of the national park in the form of a nature conservation fee included in the price.

After the trip, you can stay and enjoy the atmosphere and services of Basecamp Oulanka.
You can stay for coffee, lunch or a drink and a snack on our lakeview terrace, continue spending the summer day on our own sandy beach, in the  beach sauna and take a dip in the clear waters of Lake Ala-Juumajärvi.
