One of the most unmissable activities in Rovaniemi. Went canoeing for the very first time with a group of friends, all of whom were complete beginners. We were greeted by Chris, our guide, who helped us feel comfortable, giving us clear and simple instructions and taking all necessary safety precautions. He was also very helpful both throughout the canoeing activity and afterwards, with useful tips on how to get the most from Rovaniemi. The activity itself was amazing. It is very safe, even for beginners, and the view along the river was breathtaking. The sounds of nature and the wonderful colours of ‘ruska’ were the perfect setting for a relaxing trip while enjoying the adventurous nature of canoeing. Chris was also thoughtful enough to prepare a few refreshments, which we enjoyed while resting on a beach. I very highly recommend this tour with Nordic Odyssey to anyone visiting Rovaniemi outside of the winter season.
