Muotkajärvi Lake - Ounasjärvi Lake by Canoe or Kayak: This is a short but fun-filled paddling adventure incorporating the small rapids between Lake Muotkajärvi and Lake Ounasjärvi and the tranquil Suonttajoki river.
The ‘put in’ at Lake Muotkajärvi is c. 8km from the centre of Hetta. From there, you have a beautiful section of flat water to practice on before heading into a small but fun section of rapids between Hetta’s two main lakes. Next comes a reed-filled pond full of wildlife and flowers and a camouflaged exit onto the Lake Ounasjärvi itself. Refreshments follow in a lakeside cabin where you can stretch your legs for a while before crossing the lake and heading up the gentle, meandering Suonttajoki river to the take-out point, a short walk from Hetta Huskies’s kayak store.
Price includes boat (canoe or kayak), paddling equipment, transfer to the put-in and a guided journey along this pretty water route.
Canoe or kayak hire for a facilitated journey and a transfer to the put-in, are also possible.
This c. 4-hour journey can be arranged upon request between 1.6. – 30.9.2020.
Guided Journey: Adults €95, Children €65, Families (< 5 person) €325
Facilitated Journey Price: €45 per person.
