My family of 4 really enjoyed this kayaking trip! The area was gorgeous, and we stopped for lunch on a beautiful island. It was a great day.

Our kayaking experience was great, despite the fact that the weather wasn't at its best (a bit cloudy and windy). We'll certainly go back for more kayaking and for their other tours. It was easy to inquiry about and book our kayaking experience, because we received very quick replies to our emails. Once we showed up it only took a... More

Remember the number one rule is wind. Not rain. Natura viva and it's staff is uber helpful. They been told us certain days were not good because of wind. They really want you to be safe and enjoy your trip. Well worth it!!!! One if my highlights of my helsinki stay! Absolutely.

One of the highlights of my first visit to Helsinki. I was picked up at a central location (in front of the Kiasma Museum and after a twenty minute drive we arrived at Kallahdenselka bay, where we were instructed on the finer points of kayaking by Matteo (who also picked us up). The kayaks were very easy to use and... More

I attended to Natura Viva's Helsinki by kayak -tour (65 €) on a cold and rainy day on May. I was afraid of that it was going to be a very cold and uncomfortable paddling tour, because it's always quite windy at sea. Thanks to the company's new and quality equipment the paddling was a pleasant experience and I didn't... More

A big thank you to Ilkka and Matteo for a very memorable Snoeshoeing experience in the National Park. The tour was well organised and very informative and most of all very enjoyable. We would recommend this tour as a "must do" to anyone looking for an experience of a lifetime in Helsinki. We will certainly be recommending this tour to... More

We just came home from a great day in Nuuksio National Park. We originally planned a snowshoe safari in Nuuksio, but as snow conditions being poor this was not possible. Instead Martti and the team from Natura Viva suggested us a guided hiking tour combined with an iceskating adventure on the frozen lakes. We were picked up at our hotel... More

Did this when we visited Helsinki in August 2012. One of the best activities I have done on any holiday. This is a family run outfit and everything was well planned. The equipment was all top quality. The trip itself was thoroughly enjoyable - well guided and at a good pace. The scenery is magnificent and there is a picturesque... More

We had a terrific time on this tour with Natura Viva. It was serene and relaxing. There was a picnic lunch and a lot of history given with our trip. What a wonderful way to spend our Sunday! Would love to have been able to go on their moonlight kayak tour. Just one of many reasons to return to Helsinki!
