Kayak paddle tours in the South Finland archipelago

Your quickest entry to kayaking skills is to attend our five hour beginners course. Attend one of the sheduled courses and if you cannot match one of the available we try to organise one suitable for you. For groups larger than 4 people we can organise a bespoke class.
The structure and emphasis in the course contents will vary to meet the skills and needs of the clients while the goal is to cover and develop skills and understanding needed for a 1 Star certificate. This course is also the basis for continuing towards 2 and 3 star asessments.

This tour is targeted to serve families with children and young teenagers, but there is no reason why and older person would not enjoy the same games and teaching excersises. Kids and young teenagers enjoy kayaking as such. In a family setting they might be bored without the extra action. The young quickly learn an exceed their elders in skills in the right setting. The proper challenges are brought by educational games towards kayak handling, balancing and rescue skills. This tour is designed to be spiced with games and skills learning while having a goal to reach a camping site/cottage in the unique archipelago of Ekenäs. We pick and choose from a palette of activities that we feel will inspire most at that moment.
The tour is approximately 8-10 kilometers per day. Our experience is that children even under the age of 9 and up can paddle the distance in their own boat, participate and enjoy in the company of their parent(s). Parents may learn about towing and safety considerations where they play with their kids.
Small islands and rocks can be explored by foot or by kayak at the destination. Food and sauna can be included. Sleeping is either in high quality tents with sleeping bags or in a cottage.
