Description of the trip
Guided canoe and hiking trip in Repovesi National Park
The tour starts at the national park gate at the time of welcome and information and continues according to a pre-agreed program.
The normal course of the program is as follows:
- Guided hiking to the campfire site
- Welcome coffees with stuffed bun (meat or fish filling)
- Departure to the waters by our big canoes
- Lunch by the campfire
- Guided hiking and return to the starting point
- Thank you for the trip and welcome again
The program is adapted to the size of the group. The determining factor is our two giant canoes, which can carry 18 people at a time in addition to skippers. Giant canoes are easy to paddle, so 4-5 people are enough for one canoe. Giant canoes are safe and suitable for everyone.
A canoe trip will introduce you to the park’s prehistory, rock paintings, and last ice age.
We may also visit the Natural Theater, which hosts concerts every year.
During the hike, you usually visit the Katajavuori viewpoint and cross the water twice, along the Lapinsalmi suspension bridge and by hand-operated ferry.
The trip is very suitable for a recreation day of a working group.
The trip can be supplemented as a two-day meeting + recreation trip. Or the day can be extended with a sauna and a good dinner. Ask about opportunities!
