Activity Canoeing

For the canoeist and kayaker, Sodankylä’s wild forest rivers, coursing through wide boggy areas, open up a landscape that few have seen.


Sodankylä is full of beautiful, wild rivers that are plentiful in fish and perfect for beginners and children with families. Some routes also offer more challenging rapids sections, which are suitable for more experienced canoeists and kayakers. Here you can find a couple of canoeing routes.

It’s worth planning fishing as a part of a canoeing or kayaking trip. Make sure your licences are up to date before your trip, see

You can rent equipment from Sompion Samoilijat ry or Loito Oy.
