Rental kayaks 

We offer sea kayaks for rent in the Vuosaari Paddling Center, Eastern Helsinki archipelago. The resort is located on the shore of Iso Kallahti bay, and the waterways to the Helsinki archipelago are plentiful. The variety of kayaks consists of beginners basic kayaks, sea and touring kayaks for more advanced paddlers and double kayaks for two persons. 

The rental duration begins from two hours and overnight rentals are also available. 

Rental canoes

There are open canoes available for rent at our Nuuksio Hawk Nest resort, located inside the Nuuksio National Park, wider Helsinki metropolitan area. The Hawk Nest is situated on the shore of Hawk Lake, a calm and sheltered forest lake, ideal for canoe trips. The open canoes can carry three adults or two adults and two children and are suitable for relaxing canoeing sessions at the lake. 

The rental duration at Hawk Nest for open canoes is 1–2 hours. There are also some open canoes available for rent at the Paddling Center, Vuosaari, also for overnight rentals. 

Rental SUP boards

We offer also SUP boards for rent in our both resorts. Stand up paddling is trendy and fun, and the Vuosaari and Nuuksio locations offer the perfect environment for SUP sessions. In Vuosaari the Iso Kallahti bay is an epic-scale setting with marine vibes and occasionally some waves. In Nuuksio National Park the ever-calm Hawk Lake sets a different yet equally impressive tone: the thick forests and steep rocks surrounding the lake create a unique SUP environment. 

We offer the SUP boards in two sizes, and the rental duration starts from 1 h. In Vuosaari you can rent the SUP board also over night. 

Rental Fatbikes

The Fatbike is the ideal bike for a cozy biking stroll – equipped with multiple gears, you can easily pedal uphills and climbs with the Fatbike. The robust frame and extra-wide tires with lower-than-normal air pressure create better friction on slippery terrains, even on snow and ice. We offer Fatbikes for rent on both resorts. 

In Vuosaari the terrain is mostly flat and you can easily pedal great distances. There’s plenty to see in the district, and the forests and seashores are breathtakingly beautiful. In Nuuksio the terrain is occasionally hilly and the trails lead deep into the National Park forests. 

The Fatbike rentals start from 2 hours and also overnight rentals are available. 

Rental rowing boats

Rowing boats are available for rent on both resorts. In Vuosaari you will be able to row along the coastline and visit the public recreational islands of the area. In Nuuksio the Hawk Lake provides the perfect setting for a relaxing rowing session. Pack a picnic basket with you and enjoy the forest calmness.

The rowing boats can carry three to four people. In Nuuksio Hawk Nest the rental duration is 1–2 h, in Vuosaari you can also rent a boat for overnight trips.
