Rafting: Family Route

Nature-friendly rafting with seven rapids and two lake areas. Suitable for beginners and families with kids (age limit 5 years). Duration approx. 3 hours. Rapid classes I-III.

The trip begins with collecting our safety equipment at Basecamp, from where you will be transferred by road to the starting point of the rafting at Käylä on the bank of the Kitkajoki river. The total length of the river route is 14 kilometers and seven Class I-III rapids are navigated along the route. At first we practice on an easy I-class rapids, after this we progress onto a II-class Peurakoski and Saarikoski and then onto a III-class the Harjakoski, which offers its challenges from all directions.

The rapids power us along and the backwaters between them are slowly paddled by human muscles, allowing us to enjoy the tranquility of nature. In the lake areas at the beginning and end of the route we use the power of an eco-friendly electric motor or a 4-stroke outboard motor. Our day ends at the sandy beach of Basecamp.

This trip is nature-friendly and child-friendly: Even the youngest children can paddle on the calmer sections, so they don't have to sit in the middle of the boat for the whole trip.
