We rent open canoes, kayaks and SUP (Stand Up Paddling) boards ranging from a few hours up to several days. We also offer canoeing packages which we are constantly working on to include different duration and levels of difficulty.
The stunning and peaceful surroundings of the river Koitajoki and lake Koitere are great places for both short and long canoeing trips on the beautiful lake and riverscape of eastern Finland. The distance from the northern section of Koitere, edge of Patvinsuo, to Möhkö or Petkeljärvi, the other end of the waterway route, is about 90km by canoe. Koitajoki meanders peacefully around the rare bog-like edges of Kesonsuo. These waters are suitable even for the more inexperienced paddlers. The most eastern Koitajoki and rivers running to Koitere offer you also more challenging paddling routes. In addition, many rivers and lakes are next to hiking routes, thus providing you an option to combine both paddling and hiking to your nature adventure. The longer, more challenging, canoeing routes require several days to complete and allow for the opportunity to stay over in the nice camping sites or at one of our accommodation options. Combine your holiday travels in North Carelia with a couple of hours or even a full day of canoeing or SUP (Stand Up Paddling), or you can even spend some time in nature by spending a night at the camping sites along the canoeing route.
The departure and pick-up points are at the shores of Koitajoki and Koitere or elsewhere when needed. Our transportation service will take you to and from your destinations. You can go canoeing from April to October-November depending on how early spring begins and when the waters freeze in the autumn.
Below you can find information about hiring canoe equipment and paddling packages from a day trip with 13 km to a week long and over 100 km of canoeing. All canoeing/hiking packages can be booked directly through the product page. You are also most welcome to ask for more details and book via email and phone. Step into the world of adventurous canoeing experiences!
