We can offer either guided or facilitated paddle journeys on this wilderness river. The most popular section runs for 35km between Leppajärvi and Palojoensuu and takes 1-2 days.

Enontekiö has a number of beautiful river journeys that can be undertaken even by those with little experience.  One of the easiest to access is the gd 1 and 2 Palojoki river which flows through the remote Tarvantovaara Wilderness Area.

The normal put in is near Lake Palojärvi and the take out, c. 33km later, near Palojoensuu.  Some choose to overnight c. half-way in our wilderness cabin whilst others paddle the whole stretch in one go. The rapids allow for intermingled relaxation and fun and there are a rich assortment of fish in the river for those keen to take some fishing breaks.

The guided journey described here includes an experienced river guide, hire of canoe or kayak and paddling equipment and car transfers between the put-in and take-out points.  The two-day guided journey also includes a night with full board in a wilderness Mökki c. half way along the river. The journey can also be undertaken as a facilitated journey. The price for this includes just the river transfers and the equipment hire for as many days as need be. It does not include the night in the wilderness Mökki.

This c. 4-hour journey can be arranged upon request between 1.6. – 30.9.2020.
