-"Paddling in our rubber dinghy, we draw closer to the thundering rapids. Our hearts pound. The current takes us with it and the rapids roar until the current lets go and our dinghy glides quietly forward. We wipe the drops of water off our faces and carry on with a shivery smile."-

Usually, we start the expedition from our office at Saariselkä, where you will be given all necessary equipments you need during the day (lifevest and helmet). After that, we drive approxm. one hour to Inari and continue to the lake Solojärvi, where we set our rubber dinphy on the water. We start paddling along Solojärvi at Inari and come ashore after the Haapakoski rapids. During the expedition, there will be two bigger white water rapids on the river and few smaller streams along the way. We will also have one coffee break at Ritakoski. Please note, that you can also hop in the car from Ivalo or Inari, so it is not compulsory to meet us at the Saariselkä office. Warm welcome!
