Botnia Outdoor is a young company offering activities to remember for individuals and groups. Strength of the Company: Oulu and its surrounding areas has unbelievable potential in new and fresh outdoor activities. The variety of landscape suits perfectly for stand up paddle boarding, kayaking, kitesurfing, wakeboarding and fatbiking.

Oulu by Kayak

The delta of the river Oulu offers outstanding waterways for you to explore. Several islands and straits offer perfect shelter from the open sea but at the same time makes the safari very interesting with constantly changing views from urban city view to quiet country like views. Most of the times you would not believe you are paddling close to the fourth biggest city of Finland. Oulu by kayak is a perfect match to groups from all origins. Let it be company retreat or something special with your friends and family. This safari does not require any previous experience from paddling. We start the safari with a technique and safety briefing at the beach before heading to the waters. All of our equipments are very safe and stable.

Looking to paddle somewhere else than Oulu? We offer these and many other kayaking, Stand Up Paddle boarding and fatbiking safaris at the location you desire (within 100 km from Oulu, Raahe or Kalajoki)

During the summer months (June – August) we organize open kayak safaris every Monday 18 -20 h from the Oulu Paddling Centre. Here you can join alone or with friends. On top of this we offer various open safaris during the summer months.

SUP Safari

Experience the beautiful river mouth of Oulu standing on a massive paddle board. With our experienced guides you can learn the sport quickly and enjoy the silence and scenery when we slowly paddle around the small islands and rivers. In this safari we will start from the basics and progress to improve technique as students develop their skills. This makes it perfect for first timers but we can also give advanced tips for customers who have previous experience.

As a standard we can offer 2 sit on top kayaks if some participants in the group don't want to use SUP. In bigger groups we can offer kayaks to more people. In our safaris we use very high quality equipments. All in all we use the same equipment in rental use as we use ourself and sell to experienced riders. This tour is also possible by kayak.
