Lapland Safaris PACKRAFTING AND HIKING
About 15 min drive from Saariselkä we reach our starting place at Tolosjoki. This beautiful river is mainly slow flowing and offers amazing sceneries along its way. Some small rapids, easy to paddle, will increase the fun. Here and there the water is shallow and we might need to wet our feet for a moment. The packrafts are easy to paddle and very light to carry.
On the shore along the first part of the river there is gold digging going on during the summer. We take a break for food, snacks and some pictures. After approximately 10 km of paddling it is time to explore the forest around us. We pack our things and start hiking back towards Saariselkä. During this easy 5 km hike we will learn more about the Lappish flora and we might also find traces of different animals.
Duration: around 5 hours.
