Would you like to add an element of history to your kayaking tour? This tour takes you to Vartiosaari and through the nature trail and its historical sights.
Vartiosaari is an island in Eastern Helsinki. The shores of the island are scattered with many villas and vacation homes. The oldest villas dating back to the late 19th century. This tour gives you a glimpse into the island's history and its present. We arrive to the northern tip of the island in our kayaks and move on to the nature trail by foot. While we are on the island we will also stop and enjoy our picnic.
We will provide transportation to and from the Vuosaari paddling center, which is the starts and end point of the kayaking tour.
Vuosaari Paddling Center with pick-up and drop-off from hotel/ cruise ship/ etc.
Time: From the beginning of May until the end of September every day.
Group size: 1 - 8 person, (minumum charge 4 x price per person). For bigger groups, contact us!
Previous kayaking experience is not needed. Beginners are warmly welcomed, since the kayaks are stable and easily maneuverable. The nature trail takes us along paths in variable terrain. A basic fitness is therefore helpful.
Pick-up and drop-off, professional guiding, kayaks, paddles, spray skirts, life vests, water bottles, abundant picnic and if needed wind-and waterproof paddling jackets will be provided.
