Tour Skating Season Started

The tour skating season has been started in Tampere and the biggest lake around, Näsijärvi is also covered with ice. For more detailed info on ice conditions and safety can be found from our Facebook-page.

Because now these is the chance to go skating on Näsijärvi we have opened our winter sports rental shop, the Bikini Bar at Kaupinoja. Here is the map to find us.

We will announce the open hours both on Facebook as here on our own pages (see the link).

Soon we will also announce our open winter guidances and tours (tour skating, skiing, snowshoeing etc.).

Merry Christmas time!


Canoeing in Tampere, Finland

Tampere offers a wide variety of choices for kayaking and canoeing. The lakes Näsijärvi and Pyhäjärvi surrounding the city make for an unique kayaking city. As we say Tampere is the worlds greatest small city. This is due to the geography of the city on a ridge between two lakes. You can reach up to hundreds of kilometres of paddling routes from Tampere. In addition there are some really nice river destinations in the surrounding province of Pirkanmaa.

We are the areas longest living and biggest canoe rental shop. You can find all different kind of boats from us ranging from below 2 metres freestyle kayaks to 8 person voyager canoes. We have seats for up to around 150 in different canoes. When you rent a canoe from us, you will always automatically get paddles, pfd, bailer, in kayaks a spraydeck and a helmet when needed (eg. whitewater). If needed we will also transport the equipment to a desired location.

But we are not just a canoe rental shop, but a full service canoe company. We can guide you from the very basics of paddling to the most advanced level. If you are a self supportive canoe tourist we can give you the best tips on where to go. Or if you are still a novice, we will make sure that your paddling experience will be safe and enjoyable.

From this site you can find our extensive services. Contact us bravely and join us for an exhilarating paddling experience!
