Know More about this tour

Hop into your canoe at 9am at Honkapirtti Beach and paddle through narrow river route onto the open waters of Lake Ruokojärvi with your private guide to begin your 3-hour tour. 

Along the way, listen as your private guide sheds light on the region’s geography, and keep watch for lake birds playing in the shoreline. Lake Ruokojärvi is famous for a rich population of migrating birds, especially in the spring. In fact, one of the best times to take this tour is end of April and early May when there are thousands of birds around and the arrival of spring is like a big show. As the summer advances, the lake will get covered by reeds, and paddling through the labyrinth like waterway is like being in an American swamps area, except here there are no crocodiles!

Sip hot coffee by the open fire, and upgrade your tour to include a campfire meal prepared by your private guide. When your 3-hour canoe trip comes to an end, paddle back to your starting point in Honkapirtti to conclude your tour.

This tour suits also first time paddlers. Your guide will give you full instructions about paddling, and you will learn the basics during the tour.
