Snowmobile Safari Of Your Dreams

Snowmobile Safari Of Your Dreams

We will arrange a snowmobiling experience according to your wishes. Whether your wish for a quick sporty trip or an adventure lasting several days, we will make it happen. The participants’ previous driving experience on a snowmobile or other similar motor vehicle will partly determine the length of the route. If necessary, we can organize separate groups for slow and fast drivers. Here are some questions to help you plan your trip:

  • How long would you like your safari to last?
  • Half a day, full day, or overnight?
  • What kind of snowmobiles would the participants like to ride: powerful two-stroke sports snowmobiles or more relaxed four-stroke snowmobiles?

Canoeing Route Savilampi – Kiutaköngäs – Jäkälämutka

Canoeing
Savilampi – Kiutaköngäs – Jäkälämutka

Independent

Includes transport to Savilampi and return from Jäkälämutka to the place of departure.

Transport to Lake Savilampi departs from Oulanka Visitor Centre. At the Savilampi place of departure, we will take the canoes to the river. At the meeting point of Lake Savilampi and River Oulankajoki, there is a small rapid that you will shoot down through the middle section of the foaming water. The rapid is quite shallow and not very large. The paddlers are in the Oulanka National Park area right from the beginning of the route.

After paddling a little more than 2 km, you can already hear the rumble of the mighty Taivalköngäs rapid. This natural attraction can only be admired from the shore, as it is too big to shoot. The canoes are taken 200 m downstream via an island in the middle of the river and along an easy path.

Before Kiutaköngäs waterfall, the canoes are lifted ashore at the Oulanka Visitor Centre. The paddling trip continues below Kiutaköngäs through the magnificent river scenery towards Jäkälämutka.
