White water rafting
Do you enjoy thrill and speed? White water rafting is an adventure many have yet to experience! White water rafting gives you a front-seat experience of wild nature and rushing water, with a touch of adrenaline. The excursion runs along the best rafting route in Southern Finland, through the spray of the Ahvionkoski and Pernoonkoski rapids and the calmer waters of the Kultaankoski rapids.
The programme starts with a meet-up at one of Woikoski Feeling’s locations. From there, you will be transported to Mari’s Coffee in Anjala, where you will stop for coffee, and the equipment for the excursion will be handed out. Next, we will proceed to the starting point at Ahvionkoski, where the guide will go over safety instructions and teach us to steer the raft. Then it is time for an adventure in the fascinating world of the free-flowing rapids of Kymijoki river.
The excursion ends at the bottom of the Pernoonkoski rapids. From here, you will be transported first to Mari's Coffee and then back to Woikoski Feeling. The activity is arranged by Seikkailuviikari, a local outdoor activity organiser.

“I love fast-paced sports, and white water rafting was super fun. After the rafting excursion we returned to WHD Gård for sauna, and it was nice to soak in the hot tub after a dip in the cool lake.”
