A GREAT SUMMER EXPERIENCE!
Explore Lapland nature in summer from a different perspective! Canoeing is one of the best outdoor activities you may enjoy in summer / autumn in Lapland. The region is full of peaceful rivers and lakes, with beautiful colors and rich wildlife to observe.
During the experience, you will enjoy paddling your own canoe on a quiet lake away from Rovaniemi area. This is a great outdoor experience that allows you to connect with the beautiful arctic nature while enjoying some gentle exercise.
This unique canoe adventure is adapted to all levels, and organized in very small groups for more comfort. It is led by a certified canoeing guide who will provide you with paddling instructions and other safety aspects. They will always be there to assist you if you need, and offer you as much of their stories and passion as they can!
After the paddling time, your guide will prepare a delicious snack over the open fire, usually a salmon fish cooked in a traditional way (vegan option is also possible) with hot drinks. This will be a great opportunity for your guide to show you how to build a fire in arctic conditions and answer all your questions about Lapland.
The tour is organized on mornings, afternoons or evenings. The evening tour starts at a flexible time and allows you to enjoy never-ending sunsets in summer or Northern lights in autumn (if you are brave enough to paddle on cold waters)!
