The kayaking route east of Helsinki is diverse and has wonderful options for an overnight trip. We provide you with all the necessary gear. Just bring your adventure spirit!
Booking: Please choose the preliminary number of participants and date for the event. We will get back to you and confirm kayak availability.
The Gulf of Finland east of Helsinki features hundreds of islands and a stunning marine nature. This popular paddling route starts from our paddling center in Vuosaari. You will be paddling through the Sipoo archipelago towards the City of Porvoo or Pellinki island in the outer archipelago, about 60 – 70 kilometres away from Helsinki. The many islands give you shelter and many places to stop for a break or overnight. Still the open sea is not too far out, if you want more challenging conditions. Explore the beautiful archipelago east of Helsinki at your own pace.
