In the summer, the white waters of Kuusamo roar loudly and the white, foam crested waves resemble small ice floes. The flowing water provides a unique opportunity daringly shooting the fast falling rapids. Just be brave and sit in the large rubber raft - it's totally safe and good fun for the whole family!
Shooting the rapids on a rubber raft is an action-packed, unique experience. The rapids run the fastest in the beginning of the summer, but the thrilling speed can be experienced in the autumn as well. This sport, which is equally suitable for families and for groups composed of fellow-workers, strengthens team spirit.
Routes for families and daredevils
You can choose between several routes. The numerous safari organizers provide tranquil family outings to the rapids of the River Kitkajoki, which are suitable for children, as well as trips with extreme challenges in the form of shooting the demanding rapids of the River Kuusinkijoki.
One of the easiest experiences is a route from Käylä to Juuma (family route) lasting 2 - 3 hours. The route from Juuma down to the frontier zone is definitely longer (5 - 6 hours) - and if you want to raft all the way from Käylä to the frontier zone, you will need a whole day. You can also choose the best part, i.e. the Juuma rapids, which take only 1 - 2 hours.
Safety comes first
Each raft has a skipper who has passed a skipper's test and knows the routes well. The rafting package includes equipment (rubber boots, raincoat and trousers, life vest, helmet and insurance) as well as coffee at the camp after the enjoyable rafting experience. You can combine rafting with river fishing and have a meal, if you want.
