Water activities in the Oulu Region

White water rafting in Koiteli

We will raft “Tulikurkku”, a short rapid as a practice and then head on to Koiteli - 300 meters of white water, big waves and a jumping ride. The skippers take you to have a close look at the rapids first and then you can choose the most interesting route, as the first time was just for practice. Then you can have another go - maybe this time taking the more challenging route .... The rapids are class 3 by the international classification standard.
