Ilkka, your local contact in Helsinki
Hello travelers ! My name is Ilkka and I am the owner of Natura Viva. I have been kayaking and doing outdoor activities my whole life and also working with outdoor activities for the last 8 years. In my free time apart from kayaking I also enjoy skiing and running. I live in Helsinki, I was born here and have lived here for most of my life.
Let's go to Finland !
Known as the country of thousands lakes and for good reason- there is nearly 200,000 lakes in this unique destination. Finland attracts every year travelers seeking for a peaceful holidays close to the nature. The people in Finland are friendly, but to really get to know a Finn, you need to spend a bit more time with them ! Best time to visit Helsinki in during the summer, when July is the warmest month.
One of the must-see places in Finland is of course the modern capital, Helsinki. This city might seem young compared to the other Scandinavian siblings but is a great place to visit and the best part of it is the nature ! The shoreline is 100 kilometers of coast and is surrounded by over 300 islands that are accessible for you to discover with Natura Viva. Ready to explore the nature that cannot be found in another European capital? Let's go to Helsinki !
Natura Viva, your local outdoor expert in Finland
Natura Viva is the leading provider of kayaking services in Finland. We offer kayak rental, kayak tours and courses. Our kayak rental is open every day from the beginning of May until the end of September. Kayaking is a great way to experience the beautiful nature in Southern Finland. We also offer hiking trips around the Helsinki area.
We launched Natura Viva in 2007 as we wanted to offer something which wasn't available in Helsinki when we started. The nature here is beautiful and we wanted to make it possible for people to experience that. All members of our team are really passionate about what they are doing; the best thing for us is to meet all the nice people and let them experience Helsinki from another perspective.
