Kayaking is a great way to access the beautiful archipelago of Eastern Helsinki! In summer the days are long and there is plenty of light for paddling throughout the day. Beginners and experts alike can rent a kayak from us and find themselves a suitable route to paddle. The Baltic Sea offers usually enjoyable and calm paddling conditions, suitable also for beginners. There are several recreational islands within a small paddling distance, on which you are allowed to go ashore. Some of these islands even allow camping, there are public saunas and common campfire places. When you are seeking a kayak rental in Helsinki, look no further.

We also rent canoes and SUP boards for additional water activities and Fatbikes for fun bike rides around the Vuosaari area. The rental periods for kayaks start from 2 hours and expand to overnight rentals. 

You can make your reservation online or also conviniently at the Paddling Center. All reservations, online or on location, are to be paid beforehand. Please begin by choosing the product/model you wish to rent and the rental time. You can add several products to your reservation. 

Over 24 h rentals can be booked through our office. Please contact us at info@naturaviva.fi or call +358 10 292 4030. We will gladly assist you with all inquiries.
