Lake Inari is among the finest paddling waters in Finland. Join us on a guided kayak trip in the true Lapland wilderness.
This guided, scheduled paddling trip will take place on Lake Inari, the third largest lake in Finland, which is located in the heart of Lapland. We head our kayaks towards Vätsäri Wilderness area, on the Northern part of lake Inari. This vast wilderness stretches all the way to the Finnish-Norwegian border.
Lake Inari is a demanding yet rewarding kayaking environment. The water is always cold, the winds might be rough and the surroundings are rugged. However, the Lapland landscape and the scenery take your breath away with their untouched beauty. During the kayak trip we paddle among the islands and take shelter from the harshest winds. The distances paddled daily during this one-week trip will reach up to 25 kilometers, and the nights we spend under the Lapland stars in tents. Nothing is better than to sit by the campfire after a hard days paddle under the starry skies. If the weather is clear, there's a high probability we see some Northern lights.
