Helsinki by sea

Kayak trip to Helsinki archipelago... Hmm, it was an idea during the winter time and finally it realized. The starting point was Suomenoja guest harbor at Espoo and the trip headed towards Helsinki. Unfortunately the length of the trip was only two days, which on the other hand limited the number of places to visit. Therefore there are lots of places still to be seen and visited for other trips to Helsnki area in the future...

Suvisaaristo, Espoo

I have to admit Helsinki is beautiful city from the sea. Small islands make the paddling interesting and there's always protection against the wind. On the other hand there are lots of boats, ships and other vessels on the sea, which makes the paddling a bit more challenging.

It's amazing how many kayaking clubs have their premises just in the center of Helsinki. Merimelojat (MeMe), Helsingin Kanoottiklubi (HKK), Helsingin Melojat (HeMe) and Melaveikot (MeVe). Plus few more in Espoo... The possibilities for kayaking in Helsinki area are extremely good.

This wasn't my last kayak trip on Helsinki area...
