Kayaking trip to Heinänen Island

A full day guided paddling adventure in lake Saimaa. You can paddle in a kayak single or with a friend, in a double kayak.

We will set off at 9 am. The paddling route will meander in the safety of the Niinisaari/Lintusalo archipelago and we will make a short excursion to the edge of the greater Saimaa area. Half-way into the trip we will stop at Heinänen isle, where our hosts will serve us a scrumptious lunch. We will have a break at the island, with the hosts chickens, sheep and honey bees. Further rest breaks can be held, as needed. After the days paddle, we will have a relaxing sauna in the Hanhiniitty traditional style wood sauna, and a refreshing swim in lake Saimaa.
