Kayak - kayak season pass allows you to paddle in several kayaking destinations in Southern Finland during the summer season!
With the kayak season pass you can paddle in several paddling destinations in Helsinki, Espoo, Teijo and Repovesi National Parks. The wide range of kayaks and destinations ensures that you will have unforgettable outdoor experiences and spend a great summer in marine nature.
In addition to our own trips, you can join free guided kayaking trips in the Capital Region and get benefits for longer kayaking trips.
Easy booking and support for your activities
As a season pass holder, you can book your equipment independently and our offices don't have to be open to take you paddling. You can paddle at our paddling sites from 05.00 to 24.00. Overnight trips are also possible. Season ticket holders have their own Facebook group where you can look for paddling companionship and get tips from other season ticket holders.
This season pass is valid from the moment of purchase until the end of the 2024 paddling season. The paddling season always ends at the end of September.
If you have completed a beginner's course or a rescue training course, you can paddle at any time during the paddling season from 1.5 to 30.9
If you have not completed a beginners' course or rescue training, you can paddle at any time from 1 June to 31 August.
May and September are limited so that you can paddle within our opening hours. We limit paddling for your safety - the sea water is cold in the early and late season. When paddling during these times, it is good to know the basic principles of lifesaving.
