Depart from your Rovaniemi hotel in a comfortable, air-conditioned minivan and relax during the scenic journey to the shores of the Kemijoki River, Finland’s longest river. After donning your lifejacket and listening to a short safety briefing, climb aboard a traditional wooden jokivene and embark on an idyllic cruise through swathes of beautiful countryside and woodland.
As you sail, listen to illuminating commentary from your guide and gain insight into Finland’s rich industrial heritage; hear of how 19th-century raftsmen floated along the river on logs and enrich your knowledge of the country’s forestry trade.
Capture photographs of idyllic natural panoramas and scour the scenery for sightings of native Finnish wildlife. See quaint river cottages before returning to your original departure point to disembark. Relax as you travel back to your Rovaniemi hotel, where the tour concludes.
