Canoeing on Siiponjoki river or Rahja archipelago

Kalajoki Sand Dunes is for sure the ultimate summer hang-out, but there is more to discover in the backcountry. By
canoes we get to discover either Siiponjoki river or Rahja archipelago, depending on prevailing weather conditions and
the time of the year. The route of the day has been decided on by the guide the same morning. Canoeing in these
beautiful settings is an unforgettable experience for anyone!
Discover Siiponjoki river meandering through sand ridges and the tall pine tree forests. This is a Natura 2000 area and
has protected rapid areas and the downstream dune area. A snack is enjoyed at one of the campfire sites along the
river. The river slowly takes you towards its outlet to Bothnian Bay.
You might instead be experiencing wonderful Rahja archipelago by paddling through land rise areas and coastal
landscapes, from the vast coastal meadows to the scattered bird islets. Your guide knows the archipelago and will
introduce you to its nature. At a landing site, picnic is served.
