Rowing is such a fun and a traditional free-time activity in Finland. Try rowing in Helsinki and in Espoo – rent a rowing boat and spend a fun day outdoors!

The traditional Finnish rowing boat is nothing like the speedy rowing boats they compete with at the rowing races! Our rowing boats can carry three to four people and are designed for relaxing rowing sessions on the coast or at the lake. Nothing competitive or stressing here, just a fun day out on the waves in good company. Rent a rowing boat in Helsinki at the Paddling Center in Vuosaari or in Espoo at the Nuuksio Hawk Nest resort in Nuuksio National Park. It’s a top-notch summer activity – and you get to spend time outdoors in the beautiful Finnish nature!

All rowing boat rentals also include oars, personal floating devices (pfd) and bailers.

A tour in the Helsinki archipelago is a great experience with a traditional rowing boat. Take with you a picnic basket and head on to one of the recreational islands nearby. They are maintenanced by the City of Helsinki, some contain public saunas and campfire sites. These are ideal destinations for a nice in-between break from the rowing. We highly recommend renting a rowing boat for an easy-going session outdoors with friends! Good times indeed!

The rowing boat rental duration in Vuosaari ranges from 1 h to overnight rentals.

A rowing tour on the calm Hawk Lake within the Nuuksio National Park is nice way to spend the day outdoors in fresh air!
