What to Expect?

During the Spring meltdown, there is a short window of white water kayaking options even in the capital of Estonia, Tallinn. Usually, from the end of March until the end of April, the water level in Pirita river raises more than a 100%, giving us the chance to enjoy a speedy and super fun adventurous 9km kayak tour inside Tallinn.

Basic balance and some physical skill is needed, but it`s safe and doable for most adventure seekers. Are you coming to Tallinn for a few days with a backpack? No problem. In addition to kayaking equipment, we provide drysuits, water shoes and helmets, so you don`t need any special clothes. Come as you are. Amazing nature, beautiful views in a nature protection area, fast, fun and adventurous – all of this 20min from city centre.

Coming by car:
As a rule, we take all cars to the ending point and drive back to the start, so after finishing the trip, it is possible to get into the car without delay.

Coming by taxi:
Please, show the meeting point to the driver on the map!
