Kayaking Islet to Island

Guided kayaking safari in the Baltic Sea National park

Kayaking is one of the best ways to enjoy midsummer in Finland and enables you to get up close to some of the country’s wonderful wildlife. In the wilderness of the Bothinan Sea National Park, you will enjoy an unforgettable experience.

This trip will enable you to experience kayaking, fishing, hiking, barbecues and camping out in tents on the wilderness islands under the northern lights.

The diversity of the landscape is unbelievable; it’s an area formed by the natural process of glacial uplifting, which makes it very special and unique. The landscape is made up of rocky coastlines, sandy beaches, river deltas and more.

There will be opportunities to enjoy a relaxing Finnish sauna and swim in the Baltic Sea - something that Finnish people love to do.

The National Park is the perfect place for nature lovers – it’s the best area in Finland for bird watching. Migration routes for many different species cross over this area of coastline, which is bordered by Nordic Taiga forest. The islands are dotted with beautiful wildflowers.
