Lapinsalmi paddling base

A new canoeing base is established to the Repovesi National Park Lapinsalmi entrance by Metsähallitus (Forestry authority). The base is used by several entrepreneurs and SeikkailuviiKari is renting five canoes on the base. SeikkailuviiKari storage sign is E. More equipment can be delivered from main storage in Hillosensalmi paddling base if necessary.

The paddling base is SeikkailuviiKari’s self-service point for self-acting Repovesi visitors. There is no service on the base, instead using canoes is based on a strong trust between the merchant and the customer. You’ll have the equipment at your disposal with a special number code.

The base’s equipment is operated at one’s own risk. The customer needs to have previous experience of canoeing and good knowledge of the equipment. Also swimming skills are necessary.

Location of base

Lapinsalmi paddling base is located at Lapinsalmi entrance, by the rescue road to shore, near the shore.

Address: Riippusillantie 55, 47910 Hillosensalmi, Kouvola.
