If you are hiring kayaks or canoes from us but want to journey alone, we can still arrange transfers to the put-ins and take-outs of various rivers and provide advice about the river of your choice. The prices listed below are based on 2 to 4 person groups and include the rent of the boat, paddle and buoyancy aid as well as the transfer to the most common put-in and take-up points. If you have your own boats and just want help with drop-offs, or pick-ups, contact us for price options. Alternative starting and ending points can be agreed. More information about the rivers, the put-in and take-out locations and the guided price for these journeys can be found from our page on canoe and kayak adventures in summer activities.

Suonttajoki River and Lake Ounasjärvi Openwater Paddle
Kayak transfers to this river put-in are included within the kayak hire costs. Canoe hire from our base is less expensive since the canoes are located at the put-in.

Lake Muotkajärvi to Lake Ounasjärvi:
Facilitated journey price: €45

Palojoki Wilderness River:
The shortest journey possible on this river is 31km from a remote put-in near the village of Leppajärvi to a take-out up-river of Palojoensuu. Most people opt, however, for a take-out in Palojoensuu itself. Whilst it is possible to do this journey in one day, it is generally recommended as an overnight journey.

Facilitated 1-day journey price: €75 per person
Facilitated 2-day journey price: €100 per person

Käkkälöjoki River:
The normal length of this journey through the remote Pöyrisjärvi Wilderness Area from Kalmakautio to Siltakoski is 28km. Whilst it is possible to do this journey in one day, it is generally recommended as an overnight journey.

Facilitated 1-day journey price: €75 per person
Facilitated 2-day journey price: €100 per person

Ounasjoki River:
Here we have listed the price for the one-day 22km journey between Periläjärvi and Ketomella but longer journeys are obviously also possible on this mighty river.

Facilitated 1-dayjourney: €65

Könkämäeno / Tornionjoki / Muoniojoki Border River:
This large river forms the border between Finland and Sweden and is the longest un-damned river in Europe. As you can imagine, there are a number of put-in and take-out options along the border river and the ones which we offer transfers to are those relatively close to our base, in Hetta. The one day journey puts in at Palojoensuu and takes out at Saivomuotka and is 21km in length. There are no major rapids along this section.

Facilitated 1-day journey price: €65 per person

Lätäseno River (helicopter transfer):
We have based this price on a 4-day journey including a transfer day and a 3-day descent. NB: This is a challenging river and is suitable only for experienced kayakers since there are some quite difficult rapids which need to be tackled or portaged far from help. Facilitated 4-day journey price: €575 per person
