River rafting fun for families
A rafting adventure suitable for the whole family: all paddle!
3 hours and 30 minutes
A rafting adventure to remember! A summer day spent on the river is never a bad idea. Our journey starts at Kontioluola Safari Center where our guide will give us all the gear that we need for our upcoming trip. After getting all of our equipment we drive together to the starting point of our trip. Here our skipper introduces us to our raft and teaches us how to paddle and tells us all the safety instructions. This adventure consists of seven wonderful rapids on river Kitka and some lakes that we go over with a motor. The river has made the best arrangements for us: the first rapids are class one, where we can practice our team work and paddling skills. As we perfect our team work the size of the rapid gets bigger on the way. The trip ends with the big finale Harjakoski level three! We stop at the river side to make a fire and eat some snacks enjoying the peaceful nature and rushing water around us. If you have never been river rafting or you are a little bit nervous, this is the best trip for you. After this tour you will want to test the bigger rapids for sure!
All necessary gear, professional guide and transfers from Ruka area.
This trip is also suitable for adults who prefer easier rapids with a little excitement. Rapids are classified I-III. Season for river rafting lasts until the end of the September. We´ll raft as long as the water level is safe in the River.
