Basecamp to the Russian Border Zone,
(Graded I-IV) K-18
Basecamp to the Russian Border is ideal for thrill seekers and those who have experienced rafting but of course you can still participate this route, even if you have not previously rafted. The route takes us from the beach at Basecamp Oulanka to the Russian Border Zone.
During the route we will navigate through the three largest rapids of the Kitkajoki river (Graded II-IV) while enjoying the breathtaking scenery of the Kitkajoki canyon. The highlights are the Myllykoski and Aallokkokoski, where we are guaranteed to get wet, the adrenaline will flow and teamwork is necessary!
Basecamp to the Russian Border follows the Basecamp philosophy: No engines, just paddle power!
After Aallokkokoski, we explore the Jyrävä waterfall by foot and then continue our journey by raft from below the waterfall. The next 7 kilometers we paddle along the rugged canyon of the Kitkajoki river. The almost continuous Class I - II rapids give us a sense of adventure while admiring the ancient lime stone cliffs. The diverse nature of the Kitkajoki River is truely impressive! After the rapids, the journey drifts into calmer waters and in complete silence, surrounded by an old forest and meadows, towards the border zone. Here we have time to enjoy our picnic snacks as the raft flows with the current.
The return transfer to Basecamp takes approximately 45 minutes.
The Rafting package includes high-quality equipment: helmet, life jacket, rainwear, rubber boots, services of an authorized guide, picnic lunch, transport between the Russian border zone to Basecamp Oulanka, liability insurance, nature conservation fee, VAT.
