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!

After being on the run for 12 days, enduring rain and cobblestoned streets and huge crowds of tourists it was a pleasure to spend a few hours with these hospitable Fins!! We had a perfect day on the water in fresh air and with good acquaintances! If you get tired of seeing European cities and their sites, check these people... More

I went with a group of 6 people and non of us had done much kayaking before. The experience was just right for us. The water ways that we took were calm and the water wasn’t too cold which was handy as I took a dive an hour into the experience. The instructor was there to assist and I felt... More

We booked the tour a day before over the phone and had no problems. Sunday weather was great, that always helps. Our tour guide Outi was very dedicated, patient and informative, and I thought the sandwiches with the handwritten labels were a nice personal touch :) Infos about sea buckthorn and Ultima Thule were interesting. She also took pictures of... More

An absolutely brilliant kayaking tour with Outi as an excellent guide and tutor. I can highly recommend the "Helsinki by kayak" tour with Natura Viva (it was recommended to me by a Finnish friend). It's a wonderful way to see the archipelago, and the changing weather we had with a bit of rain just added to the experience. All equipment... More

We arrived in Helsinki on a cruise stop and made the arrangements independently, although a family on our ship booked the same tour, and apparently another full group. We arrived early to the meeting spot and the driver was no where to be found. The 15 or so people waited, and someone called. The driver had been there, but hadn't... More

This trip was awesome! My sister and I recently got the chance to visit Helsinki for the first time and decided to do a kayaking trip. We got to kayak in the Baltic Sea along the coast of Eastern Helsinki, around and between its various tiny islands; it was beautiful and a fun work out. I didnt have very much... More

Had a great time kayaking round the islands of Helsinki. Our guide Matteo was very knowledgable and provided a safe tour for all levels in the group to enjoy. Hopefully I can come back some day to do it again

I was a little nervous about how this would turn out. It was a cold day with wind, and we had a private tour of 9 people. I was worried we would be cold and miserable. The exact opposite happened. We loved every minute. We were actually quite warm and had the time of our lives. Kata and Emmi were... More

This was the highlight of our cruise to the Baltic Capitals and St.Petersburg. Booking was a simple online process but you have to prepay. The pick up point at Kiasma Museum of Contemporary Art at Mannerheim Street was a great 40 min walk from the pier. Our instructor Matteo was waiting for us, we were lucky as our party was... More
