Canoes for rent

2 and 3-seater Canoes available for rent on a weekly basis from Camp Laajalahti. You can organize your individual tour. This is for people with outdoor experience.

All canoes are unsinkable. Waterproof plastic barrels for your luggage, life jackets, lifeline, maps and compass are obligatory. Each guest receives detailed information about paddling, Everyman’s right, and route planning. In case of an emergency you can get help via GSM from everywhere in the Lake Saimaa region – so take your mobile phone with you. In general can be said that Lake Saimaa is a calm lake without dangerous currents. Our canoes are easy to steer due to their three keels. They also have in-built air tanks, which make them unsinkable. Your luggage is stored in waterproof plastic barrels and boxes, as well as under tarpaulins.
Our Kayaks are suitable for beginners, are steered with the feet and have separate storage space with waterproof hatches. In addition you will receive waterproof storage bags. The double paddles can be separated and, therefore, be turned to the right and to the left.
