Kopparnäs on hyvä päiväretkikohdeThe kayaking trip starts at SE-Action Canoe Centre, on the shore of Pikkala Bay in Siuntio. The Canoe Centre's range of kayaks cover both steady and easy-to-paddle basic models and spacious touring kayaks. Rental prices include paddles, life vests, spray skirts and maps, as well as a short introduction to paddling techniques and information about destinations. The sea terrace at the Canoe Centre offers coffee and handmade ice cream to both paddlers and others who want to enjoy the maritime atmosphere.

The kayaking take-off is made easy with a tailor made jetty. If the wind happens to be hard you can always switch from sea kayaking to safe paddling up the Siuntio River, which runs into the sea just by the Canoe Centre. A good destination for a kayaking trip out into the archipelago is Kopparnäs and its beautiful islands. Here you can find cooking shelters and outside WCs, and also nice spots for setting up camp if needed. The distance from the Canoe Centre makes this perfect for a bracing day trip, whereas campers will experience the peace and silence of the nightly archipelago before waking up to a new enjoyable tour among islands and skerries.

This area is part of the historical Porkkala region, the so called Porkkala Parenthesis, which hosted a Soviet navy base in 1944-1956. Today agriculture and a diverse local food culture characterize the area. For paddlers we can arrange picnics with local food, such as Pikkala corn, Gårdskulla Angus sausages and all kinds of delicacies from the Siuntio fish smokery.

Tents, sleeping bags, camping mattresses and camping stoves can be rented from SE-Action for longer paddling safaris. Camping equipment can also be purchased from the Canoe Center.
