My 9-year old son and I spent over 2 hours kayaking in the rain with our guide Outi and we had a wonderful time! Of course Natura Viva can't control the weather but her relaxed attitude and obvious love for her surroundings and country made the trip worthwhile. I would highly recommend connecting with Natura Viva and seeing what activities... More

We were picked up in the middle of Helsinki and driven to a beautiful part of the sea. Outi, our guide was very friendly and helpful, giving us an insight into many aspects of Finnish life and attitudes. We paddled out to a lovely little island where we snacked and tasted her home made drink. Very unusual, and, no, it... More

Although my husband is 76 years old, he had "the time of his life" at the kayaking, offered as part of a Fred Olsen cruise to the Baltic. Everyone was very efficient and helpful, and we have already received the action photos on our email!

The folks at Natura Viva responded quickly to emails, picked us up at our hotel as planned, and gave us a great introduction to kayaking. Some of our group had never been in a kayak before, and they did fine! The hosts fed us a picnic lunch, and also gave us some introduction to Finnish culture and history, and even... More

I would like to thank Kata for her guided tour of the Helsinki Archipelago. We traveled around some beautiful small Islands in the area. We enjoyed paddling and bits of information/conversation. Though the escape from the busy crowds of the city to the open freshness of nature was welcome and refreshing, the launch site was a fair distance from the... More

We booked this tour independently of our cruise ship, and enjoyed ourselves immensely. One of our tour guides, Outi, was promptly at the appointed place to pick up our party of six, and was friendly, prepared and reassuring on our way to the launch site. Once there, our second guide, Toni, joined us, and we began the tour. Both Outi... More

A great trip, really helpful and friendly staff, excellent equipment and communication. The team were more than happy to accommodate us - a family group. Brilliant way to see the islands and to get away from the crowds. Highly recommended:-)

I enjoyed the opportunity to get out on a small bay near Helsinki, away from the hustle & bustle of the city and typical cruise city-hopping crowds. The conditions were a bit windy, but our guides Emilia and Martti were careful and watchful. Everyone survived without a dunking and only one needed an occasional tow from Martii. The trip including... More

This was right at our hotel. Helpful staff, nice kayaks in good condition. They gave you options for kayaks, hours renting, and different route recommendations. Great way to enjoy the Baltic on a nice day.

I thoroughly enjoyed my kayaking adventure. Our guide was very knowlegable and a lot of fun. The tour was beautiful. We stopped for lunch one one of the islands and were provided with a nice lunch. I would absolutely recommend this tour!
