Raseborg - Ekenäs through the narrows and reeds

In short: This kayak tour starts along the river passing by the 14th century castle of Raseborg. We continue past lake-like bays and narrow lowland channels that are difficult to reach by any other vehicle. The default meeting place is in Ekenäs by the same shore where we will end the paddle. We estimate the paddle distance to be 18km with four hours of paddling and an hours rest halfway. Travel and preparation is about 1 hour. Minimum skills/target audience: Beginner with a good fysical endurance. Pre-booking and pre-payment.

For those who want to do it self guided we do require, as always on self guided tours, that participants have sufficient training and experience to properly take care of themselves and the equipment.
