Paddle Down Siuntionjoki

Jun 5th, 2012 | Comments

Took a paddle down the Siuntionjoki last weekend, from Sågars fors to Prästgården - paddling and bushwhacking with nice constant flow with easy rapids. Great fun for packrafts, and worked well for a kayak as well.

Not much difficulties on the way (if you don’t mind a bit of bushwhacking, and climbing over, around and under tree trunks), except being aware of the strainer at the end of one of the longer stretches of rapids. I stopped on the side safely, but while climbing on the trunk, a driftwood log stuck on it rolled over the packraft and pinned it down in the current - solution was to deflate the raft completely and pull it out, as there was no way moving the log.
