Well-organized excursion to Höytiäisen kanava. Lovely views, peacefull river, a nice excursion guide. I highly recommend Arctic Trainers if you want to learn SUP-boarding, or if you are already experienced, take a trip with Trainers!

Hi and thanks for your review Sanna! I remember your group from last summer and it was super fun day! I think every one went swimming at least once and me as a guide at least 10 times. :)
