    Hi all.

    As most of you are aware self promotion isn’t really my strong point.

    I do however run two fantastic Canoe and Bushcraft trips each year to Finland. I was asked by several people about them atbthe Bushmoot.

    So a little bit of info.

    The maximum number of clients per trip is capped at 8.

    The cost for 2020 is going to be unchanged despite the fall in the Euro increasing our costs. I want these trips to be accessible. £625pp. Flights extra.

    We took you Sam aged 6 on the last trip In May but I think it was a hard week for his father. So I would suggest these trips aren’t suitable for younger children.

    We could arrange a different trip for families on demand.

    Ok what do you get for your money.

    The forestknights team will transport you from Helsinki Airport to the destination and provide the first nights accommodation in a cabin.

    We stop in a motorway services for our evening meal. Not provided.

    On arrival at the lake all food and refreshments are provided.

    Our outfitter will provide the canoes, paddles barrels etc for our weeks camping and paddling adventure.

    Forestknights pride ourselves on the quality of our catering. You will not go hungry. Pretty much all special dietary requirements can be catered for unless you only eat caviar and steak.

    How much paddling do we do per day?

    That depends on the group. Our job is to ensure you have a fantastic time and see as much of the area as you wish. Each evening we will discuss options and make the final decisions in the morning for lunch and camping locations. Generally we are on the water for no more than 2 hours at a time. Stronger paddlers can explore further if they wish.

    Depending on conditions etc when will spend time fishing carving and enjoying wildlife watching. This is a Holliday not canoe boot camp.

    Generally I ask for a deposit with full payment at least 1 month before departure.

    Christmas would be the latest really.
