In the winter you can experience the speed with guided snowmobile tours or husky dog sleds.

We also rent out snowmobiles, cross-country skis and snowshoes for the independent explorer or groups. Our weekly winter program again offers different activities for the whole family.
Our summer programs consist of relaxing canoeing and rowing trips, the speed of cycling, white water rafting, or exciting fishing and hunting trips. From our weekly program you can also find guaranteed trips for the whole family. You can choose from guided or independent trips.
We are based in Kuusamo, which is a vast area of large Taiga forests and flowing rivers. Kuusamo is located in the North East part of Finland, next to the Russian border. Situated high on a plain, where the water flows in five different directions.
The waters of Kuusamo`s rivers are especially clear and clean. The most popular places for canoeing is the Oulanka river, and for river rafting the Kitka river. The stunning Oulanka rivers upper part flows partly through steep rocky canyons, when the lower parts of the river have been naturally eroded leaving high, bare sandy banks while it has been flowing, gently meandering along. The river Kitka flows to the East, with its fast flowing rapids are famous in Finland. They are located in the Oulanka National Park, set in the middle of pristine forest, where hikers can walk the famous Karhunkierros trail.
In the quiet winter wilderness you can travel easily by snowmobiles, or if you prefer the silence, you can experience the snowy covered trees and hills by snowshoes or cross-country skis. Besides snowmobiles, reindeer – and husky safaris are offering speed, and they are also silent ways to experience our beautiful winter nature!
