Programme description

Many of the rapids have easy access, for example Pajakkakoski rapids (450 meters) is situated only 800 meters from Hotel Kainuu and can easily be reached on foot. There is a stone pier, built for the dragging old tar boats. Another good fishing site, rapids of Lentuankoski locates 13 kilometres from Hotel Kainuu. The rest rapids give you the opprtunity to find uncrowded sites to fish in your own pease in the middle of the evergreen taiga forest and enjoy the nature.
