Canoeing is the perfect form of exercise for anyone who enjoys the nature. In the canoe, you get to be close to the water and experience nature with all of your senses. Kajaani boasts an excellent setting for canoeing with Lake Nuasjärvi on the east side of town and Lake Oulujärvi, the Sea of Kainuu, on the west side. In addition, there is a number of rivers and rapids in the town area, offering a different kind of experience compared to lake canoeing.
Before going on the water, we recommend that you go through the safety instructions found on the Finnish Canoeing and Rowing Federation website at: http://www.melontajasoutuliitto.fi/
