What to expect?

When you have done flatwater SUP for a while or you have done surfing, kayaking or other watersports and want to do some next level stuff - this is for you. You must be confident on the water and be able to swim 200 m to join the tour.

We will train all participants for whitewater rafting in the rapids of Joensuu with 2 hour practice lessons before we head for the main route to Ruunaa, Lieksa. It is possible to join the whitewater SUP practice paddling on Friday and do the Ruunaa tour on Saturday.

At Ruunaa we will paddle over a total of 10km of distance, which includes four different types of whitewaters. Ruunaa's rafting track is 2-level rating and it is ideal for whitewater rafting. Those whitewaters feel extreme even for experienced paddler when we are moving ahead standing, but it is safe also in the water. It's great to be able to SUP-paddle in very spectacural wilderness landscape. There are total of four different kind of rapids on the way. In whitewaters we use lifevests, helmets and quick-release straps, wetsuits and neoprene shoes.

All the necessary equipment is included in the price. Also transport from Joensuu-Ruunaa-Joensuu morning coffee and lunch is included.

If you are unsure whether you are fit or experienced enough for this tour, send us email ( and we will discuss whether this is for you or not.

What is included?

Is this experience for me?

All the participants must be able to swim at least 50 m in open water to join the tour. On the way there will be small rapids in Ilosaari so this tour best suitable for people who are not afraid of water.
