Booked a 2 day tour via Much Better Adventures and had a great time. Beautiful scenery, great kit from the kayaks to the tents and sleeping bags, So much choice of where to go. Our guide Matteus was helpful, fun and informative and the food was definitely not your normal camping standard - not a freeze dried packet in sight!... More

Such a great value experience. Visiting Helsinki for the first time, I didn't really know what activities to do. I love the outdoors but while Helsinki has lots of parks there didn't seem to be a lot of guided outdoor experiences in the immediate area. I stumbled upon the kayak tour online and feel so fortunate that I did! The... More

An absolute must do when in Helsinki. The natural scenery is well worth the entire experience coupled with the thrill of being on open water as opposed to kayaking on a lake. Our guide Emilia was really experienced, wonderful attitude and had a wealth of information about the archipelago and it's amazing history. I still have dreams of this beautiful... More

Hired a kayak at Natura Viva. Beautiful spot. Very helpful and friendly staff suggested a route appropriate for our expertise and the time we had. Spent a great two hours kayaking in very peaceful surroundings followed by a great hot chocolate and cake at the little café afterwards.

We booked onto a two day sea kayaking trip via Much Better Adventures. The airport pick up was easy and the hotel for the first night was great. Our guides Ilkka and Jaakko went through the different gear and how to sit and paddle properly. The kayaking pace was good, with periodic stops at different islands including an excellent lunch,...

Very flexible company (we had to change our dates due to illness and appresiate their help). Great nature experience just 20 min drive from the Helsinki city center. Highy reccommend for those who have a little time in Helsinki not just for shopping and walking downtown, but also looking for some activities.

Great kayak trip around the Helsinki archipelago. Got to see beautiful archipelago at nice easy but steady pace. Our tour guide (Matteo) was awesome...made sure that everyone had a good time and was safe......just a short bus drive from downtown.

I've never kayaked before nor am I a person who works out all the time. Even so I was able to keep up and had so much fun. Kayaks are much more stable than I thought they were and the guide was wonderful to talk to.

We did a 2-hour tour together with my friends. It was pretty amazing, there is a lot to see around the islands and going around with the kayaks is not so intensive, so everyone can participate in this activity. I definitely recommend this place.
