Stunning experience
Sep 2019
We went on a six hour canoe trip on lake Saimaa. The nature and canoeing where a first time for us and it was overwhelming. Arto is a friendly experienced guide who's cooking skills are excellent. We recommend the dinner, because we were able to taste local grilled fish on a quiet island in the sunset - a very beautiful scenery.

Thanks for the review, and thanks again for using my services. It was a great evening canoe trip indeed, and I am so happy that the end-of-the-season weather was in our favour. Glad that you liked it, and hope you enjoy your stay in Finland. cheers guide Arto

Excellent Canoe experience!
The day with Arto was excellent in every aspect. Very good reaction time and explanation during booking. Arto offers various starting locations to make Travel easy. We Booker a group of 6 persons. Perfect canoeing day with Saimaa seal and a fish eagle family sighting. Nature meal is very recommendable; Arto is cooking vegetarian and normal meal in parallel. Arto is very friendly, remarkably knowledgeable and and speaks excellent english and german. This is really recommendable. Werner - Switzerland

Beautiful Canoe Trip
Jul 2018 • Family
We did a 6 hour canoe trip on lake Saimaa, where we spotted a Saimaa Seal and a Hawk. For lunch we made a brake on an island with a camping site, where Arto cooked a very finnish meal with fish and vegetables, which was super delicious. When you make vacation in finland, tour like this is a must! And with a guide like Arto it's a perfect informative and funny day!

Canoe trip to spot a Saimaa ringed seal
Jun 2018 • Family
We did a 3 hours Saimaa ringed seal canoe tour during the early evening with Arto. Even if we were late in the season, he knows the seals and their habitat so well that he guided us to the right spot! What a delight! The canoe is a great way to get close enough to a seal without disturbing him/her. It is also a really nice way to experience the lake, its flora and fauna. Arto is a wonderful guide who knows the area very well and also speaks fluently many languages (we did the tour in French).
