Kayak - with a season pass you can paddle all summer in five different nature destinations in Southern Finland!
With a kayak season pass, you can paddle without having to make big equipment purchases or worry about storage space. Our paddling sites in Vuosaari, Kivinokka, Matinkylä, Suvisaaristo and Teijo National Park offer paddling for several years. We also organise longer paddling trips during the season, and offer a special price for season card holders.
Paddle on your own schedule
At all the kayaking sites in the capital region, you can book and use kayaks on your own between 05.00-00.00 (Mustasaari, according to the island's opening hours). Once you have purchased a season card, you will be given access to a website for season card holders, where you can book your own equipment.
Length of the season
In spring and autumn the sea is still cold and in case of a capsize it is very important that the paddler is properly equipped and knows the necessary rescue techniques. Depending on the paddler's background, there are two distinct seasons for kayaking.

Paddling in Vuosaari and Teijo is allowed during our opening hours
