A maze of islands as far as the eye can see. Silence, wilderness, sheltered mirrored waters. Sculptured by the latest ice age into 40.000 islands and skerries, the Finnish Archipelago Sea is one of the world's big wonders. Finland's Everymans' Rights offers uncountable possibilities to find your own island to camp on. This guided tour takes you together with a small group of two to seven persons to the most stunning parts of the area, offering an amazing journey into the Finnish archipelago nature and culture.

This adventureous three day sea kayaking expedition gives a fantastic time together exploring the wild and beautiful Finnish Archipelago National Park together with our nice and professional sea kayak guide. We customize the days according with the group and the weather. Experience island hopping exploring the wild islands, dive into the archipelago culture visiting island villages, swim in the sea and find amazing sites to setup camp on. Both families with children, beginners wanting to take it slow and easy and more experienced kayakers loved this expedition each time.

We pick you up from Turku after 9am, and take you to a suitable launching beach for the expedition. We vary places according to the weather and the group, and the driving time from Turku is usually a little over an hour.

We paddle out into the Archipelago National Park, stopping at special places for breaks, taking a swim if we feel like it and snack and food breaks when suitable. Your guide is also your chef during the tour if you do not chose otherwise, and will prepare fresh, local dishes out in the wild.

In the afternoon, we land on an island suitable for camping, and build our camp together with the guide. There is time to explore the island and enjoy good food and company.
