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.


Canoe, Kayak and SUP Board Rental

We have 3 x 2-seater canoes, 3 x 3-seater canoes, 7 x touring kayaks and 3 x Inflatable SUP Boards available for rental. Additional kayaks and canoes (including racing K1s, a wavehopper etc), may be available for hire on prior request.

People tend to rent kayaks and canoes for river journeys. We can either guide you on these journeys, simply rent you the equipment or faciliate your access to the journey by transferring you and your gear to and from the put-in and take-out point.

Hire Costs Kayak Rental Canoe Rental Folding Kayak / Canoe Trolley Barrels, Dry Bags, Pelicases etc SUP Board Rental
Per Day €30 €40 €5 €5 / item €30
Per Week €185 €250 €25 €25/Item/Week €175

When you hire our water craft we also issue buoyancy aids, paddles and a spraydeck for kayaks if required. Laminated maps may also be available depending on the river of your choice.

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 prices.
For those requiring a guided lake or river journey, please refer to the pages about guided canoe and kayak adventures.


Recommended Local Paddle: The Tranquil Suontajöki-Ounasjärvi Journey

FYI: This is the easiest facilitated journey option since the put-in is just 7-min hike from our base. As with all facilitated journeys, a guide will ensure that the boats are in-place for you at the put-in and will accompany you to the start your journey. The cost for this product is: Canoes: €20 / person (based on 2-3 people per canoe) and Kayaks: €45 / person).

FYI: We often have 2 to 3 canoes kept in-situ at this location so it is definitely easier for all concerned if you are happy to opt for canoes rather than kayaks for this enjoyable, relaxing, local journey.

Other Summer Kit Available for Hire

* The satellite phone hire cost listed is the base hire cost. Phone-call charges are due on top of this.
* Our Avalanche Safety Packs contain a transmitter, probe and shovel.

However, we have had enquiries about boot rental and have, on occassion, rented boots out. It just depends on whether or not we happen to have the right size available for you (we do not have a huge range of boot options other than in sizes 38-40 and size 43).
