East of Helsinki
Fatbiking, kayaking and hiking on the islands
Eastern Helsinki archipelago adventure
Enjoy the best of the Gulf of Finland. During the two days we will kayak, hike and bike and experience the wonderful nature around Helsinki.
Our first tour takes you to Vartiosaari. We start at Vuosaari Paddling Center and get into our stable kayaks. We find our way through the islands and land on a small beach on the island of Vartiosaari. From the beach we walk up the hill to see an amazing view of all the islands. We continue hiking on the nature trail and see many of historical sights of the island. An outdoor lunch is also served on the island. After our hiking tour we kayak back to the starting place. In the evening you can have dinner at Hotel Rantapuisto or head to the city center of Helsinki.
After breakfast we begin with our activity. Our fatbikes are easy single-speed bikes with foot and hand brakes. We ride on dirt roads and small tracks through forests and along the coast of the Gulf of Finland. After our bike tour we have lunch at the Paddling Center on the seaside terrace recounting the highlights of our adventure!
