Summer Kit Hire

This section of our website is about Kit available for hire. Day/Week - prices are listed but for hire-periods of over two weeks, reductions can be made.

Hire of Canoes and Kayaks from our base, for River Trips
Per day: €30 / boat.
Per week: €105 / boat

We have 3 x 2-seater canoes and 5 touring kayaks kept easily accessible at the farmhouse for those who want to rent them to paddle on local rivers. Additional 2 and 3-seater canoes are available for hire on prior request.

Hire charge includes buoyancy aid, paddle and laminated map, and spraydeck for kayaks if required.

For those needing a transfer to, or pick-up from, a river, in addition to boat hire (but without guiding) please look at the facilitated journey price quoted for the river in question since that price includes the boat & kit hire, transfers and maps.

Hire of Canoes and Kayaks from the put-in on the Suonttajoki River for the Suonttajoki Lake Ounasjärvi paddle.

Price Per Outing for Canoes: €20 / person (based on 2-3 people per canoe)
Price Per Outing for Kayaks: €40 / person

NB: The cost is higher than for the basic rental cost because of the time needed to accompany you (and sometimes the boats) to the river put-in, to explain the maps, and to re-secure the boats, back at the put-in point, at the end of the day.

We have 2 x 3-seater canoes located by the put-in to the Suonttajoki River for those who want an easy-going paddle on their own, through beautiful scenery, with little hassle. We will take you down to the put-in (c. 5 min. walk from our farm) and make sure that you know where you are going and are OK with the use of all of the equipment. You can simply leave the boats on the shore on return and we will go back down to secure them once we have collected in your equipment.

Both canoes and kayaks come with buoyancy aid and paddle and kayaks also come with a spraydeck, if you wish.
