Take your kayaking to the next level with kayaking courses!

Natura Viva offers a wide range of kayaking courses in Southern Finland. Learn the right paddling techniques and important skills for paddling safety. Under the guidance of our experienced and knowledgeable guides, you can start a new hobby or develop your skills with advanced courses.

Our paddling courses are based on the European Paddling Programme (EPP) system, which helps both beginners and more experienced paddlers to define their own level of competence and develop their skills further.

Basic and advanced courses, as well as safety training

The basic paddling course follows the content recommendations of the Finnish Paddling and Rowing Federation and teaches basic paddling skills and safety issues. The course provides the ability to continue independent training in a safe manner. Beginners' courses are available both on weekdays and weekends!

In the technique courses, we deepen the knowledge and skills learned in the beginner courses and learn more demanding paddling techniques.In the rescue training course, we practice important rescue techniques and safety skills to avoid dangerous situations in advance.
