We did this excursion at the end of October ... The LIEF guide was very helpful and nice ... The rain made everything much more adventurous, we were provided with the water resistant suit, thermal gloves and goggles. .. The dinghy whizzes very fast and if you are lucky enough to find some waves then you can jump! The island where they stopped is beautiful, even the walk in the woods is very suggestive ... You get to a wooden tower, where once you get up, you can enjoy a beautiful view of the Finnish sea. Then you go back to the cottage where you enter the sauna ... And if you are daring enough you can alternate the latter with regenerating dips in the cold waters of the sea ... In the meantime, the guide will prepare lunch ... Which in our case was a delicious salmon soup in the typical local tradition ... It was not possible to make the barbecue due to the difficult weather conditions ... I recommend it ...

the whole trip was a really good event, I can only recommend it - Leif, Patrik and his group of girls from Perpignon took care of us perfectly
