River Kaartjoki paddling route
The majestic landscape at the southern end of Lake Kaartjärvi captivates paddlers with its long ridge-like islands immediately upon departure. After approximately twenty minutes of paddling, you can easily distinguish the mouth of the River Kaartjoki among the reeds as a spar buoy marks the right way. The current is swift in the spring and carries the canoe along the river lined with common alders. Calm your mind and enjoy the silence as the river winds through forest landscapes.
River Toivanjoki paddling route
The riverbanks with their tall reeds provide a paradise-like setting for birdwatchers. It is a good idea to bring a pair of binoculars as the diversity of water birds is guaranteed. At the beginning of the growing season in the spring, the visibility beyond the reeds is excellent, and you can spot cranes walking slowly in the flood meadows.
Hauho paddling route
The slowly flowing River Sairialanjoki takes paddlers through relaxing, idyllic sceneries. In the late spring, blossoming marsh marigolds paint the riversides golden against the bright green environment. Lush vegetation hides any trace of the human hand until the medieval Church of Tuulos suddenly appears against the beautiful rural landscape.
Loimijoki paddling route
The Loimijoki paddling route is a diverse, intriguing experience. The route flows along narrow streams of headwater rivers in a wilderness atmosphere to idyllic, historical villages and the low-lying rural landscapes of the River Loimijoki region.
Vanajavesi paddling route
The Vanajavesi paddling route starts from the headwaters of the River Kokemäenjoki and traverses the entire Tavastia Proper on its way to Lake Vanajavesi. The swift and narrow upstream current calms steadily into a slower flow which gradually starts gaining higher volumes of water from little streams. From Lake Mommilanjärvi onwards, the route continues as a calm waterway that can be paddled both ways.
