The excursion starts from Oravi village where we gear up and get to know each other. After that we head directly to the blue waters of Linnansaari National Park. Our paddling route will go through the island labyrinth to Linnansaari main island where we stay overnight. Accommodation in traditional log huts. After a day outdoors, we'll enjoy a dinner prepared by the guide, have sauna and maybe a little walk around the nature paths and museum croft area. After a well slept night in a cozy hut and breakfast we'll head deeper into the national park waters.
