Viikari canoeing trips


Perhaps the best canoeing tours on the river Kymijoki are organized by SeikkailuviiKari Ltd. In early summer you can enjoy the beauty of the provincial flower the yellow iris which is quite common by the river.

We meet at Mari’s Coffee in Anjala. Next you get your equipment. Then you are transported to Anjalanlahti, the starting point of the excursion.There your guide explains you the safety regulations and teaches the essentials of canoe handling.

This route goes along the Piuhanhaara branch from Ahvio to Hirvivuolle in Pyhtää. The stretch includes some faster streams, steady-flowing waters and lots of beautiful views.

The route finishes at Hirvivuolle dam. The group is transported from there back to Mari’s Coffee.

*Another option is the route from Anjala to Ahvio. This route of 17 kilometres includes two rough rapids of class I. The most enthusiastic paddlers can combine these two stretches. Then you also shoot down the Ahvionkoski rapids of class II.
