Vuosaari – Paddling in nature’s wonderland

Finland is famous for its stunningly beautiful nature, and even when you’re right in the country capital, you have the most wonderful sites right around the corner. Recently I went kayaking for the first time, we went to Natura Viva kayaking centre in Vuosaari. Now that summer is coming, why not paddle around the beautiful coastline?

You can rent all the necessary equipment there (prices are very reasonable!) and get started! If you’re as lucky with the weather as we were, it will be an unforgettable experience. Sun, blue sky, the sea and great views on the islands and mainland shorelines around. It was one of the most relaxing trips in a while and it didn’t feel like actually doing sports!

How to get there: take the metro from the main station to Rastila and continue with Bus 96 or walk there. You can find a detailed description of the location (Ramsinniementie 14, 00980 Helsinki) on their website! In total it takes about 45minutes to get there.
