Boat tour to the Russian border – Midnight Sun trip

We will start our trip from the main building, where we will first check that your shoes and clothes are suitable for the trip.If necessary, we will borrow you a rain coat and rubber boots. Then we will drive (by the client cars) around 20 km to Onkamo village, near the Finnish-Russian border.

On the shore of Onkamo-lake we have 2 big boats – called Church Boats. The boat is having 16 seats, 10 places for rowing and rest for resting.Guide will sit on back and help steering the boat. The guide shows you how to row and steer the boat. First we practice how the Rowing Team works and then we go to the Onkamo-lake.

Easy rowing, enjoying of the landscape, listen to the guide’s stories of the Lappish nature and life in East-Lapland. After 40 minutes we will arrive to the frontier zone and will have time to look to Russian side. We will stop just a few hundred metres before the border.

Next it will be time to visit a small island and make a picnic fire there. We make some black pot coffee/tea, grilling sausages,  During June and the first part of July it is possible to see the midnight sun shining.

After coffee picnic, it is time to go back to the cars – by using the engine of the boat.
